This chapter discusses influences on religious language and David Edwards's understanding of the history of philosophy and theology and the present state of Christian thought. As the chapter attempts to open various pathways of intellectual, moral, and religious renewal, it allows for philosophical analysis of standard idioms. The chapter destabilizes the standard idioms by putting a variety of philosophical arguments about the endlessness of interpretation into the humanly manufactured character of truth. It follows that in modern times we must see realities and established change, and the sooner this is done the better.

Keywords: philosophy; theology; Christianity; idioms; change; theologians
