Travis M. Stevick earned a PhD in theology from the University of St. Andrews. This volume is based on a dissertation completed at the University of St. Andrews under the direction of Alan Torrance. He is an ordained elder in the Iowa Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church.
Encountering Reality argues for a new appreciation of T. F. Torrance on epistemology and reality. Torrance emphasizes the distinction between truth and truthfulness, thereby reorienting the discussion from a focus on statements to a focus on being.
