The best apologetic book on the subject of paradox and mysteries. Anderson argues that a christian is perfectly warranted in believing christian paradoxes, which are only apparent (which he is calling MACRUE: Merely Apparent Contradictions Resulting from Unalterated Equivocation)/5(4).

The technical term for something that is a seeming contradiction, but actually is not, is “paradox.” There are also a few Christian writers who use the word “antinomy” to describe statements that appear contradictory but actually are not.

Paradoxes in Scripture Are Concurrent Truths. A paradox is not the same as a contradiction. CHRISTIAN PARADOXES. Webster's defines a paradox as: "A statement contrary to common belief. A statement that seems contradictory, unbelievable, or absurd, but that may actually be true." A paradox is something that's not necessarily a contradiction; just a contradiction in terms.
