A new account of Australian history, and the importance that water and drought has played in the Australian story. From the moment the First Fleeters stepped ashore, water determined progress.

Then water carriers carted buckets from a nearby swamp, which was later piped, in a major feat of engineering, into the growing settlement. When it ran dry sights were set further afield. Explorers followed waterways. Frontier battles between Aboriginal and white Australians were as much contests over water as they were of land.

A great introduction to theology, particularly the problems about language that confront the modern theologian.

Lucidly explains the issues raised for Christian belief both by empiricist analytical philosophy and by existentialist hermeneutics. Following Wittgenstein, he holds that we must allow each linguistic form to disclose its own logic - to speak in terms of myth, symbol and analogy. Existentialist interpretation cannot exhaust the meaning of theological language, otherwise we are reduced to anthropology. We must progress to ontology - to talk about the transcendent Being of God.
