    Abstract:
    This book is not an introductory text. It presumes some philosophical background and interest in reasoned thought. I have written it as I approach my “retirement years,” as it were, and thus it does not contain reference to the latest scholars who may be writing on this topic. I have reverted, for my own ease of memory, to names with which I was made familiar in my formative philosophical years. My contention for many years has been that theological problems are first and, primarily, philosophical problems and need to be solved as such. To my mind, Dr. Leslie Dewart’s understanding of “dehellenization,” not to be confused with “unhellenization,” provides a philosophical opportunity for fresh reflection on our inherited classical understanding which presents contemporary problems for theologians. I have attempted such reflection in these pages. I leave it to the reader to decide whether or not my reflections have clarified the issues or clouded them.
