Nicholas Lash and the Question of God

Now, I won't claim to be in agreement with everything that Prof. Nicholas Lash has written, but he's a fine scholar and his introduction to the Notre Dame edition of Newman's Grammar of Assent was of great help to me. He was also the first Catholic Oxbridge Professor of Divinty since the reformation, and that can't be sneezed at.

He's part of a Cambridge-based school of thology heavily influenced by St.Thomas Aquinas and Wittegenstein and this witty lecture (in Quicktime format) is a relatively painless way of dispelling misconceptions about what we (should) mean when we talk about God.
