The last few decades have seen a revolution in debates about the rationality of Christian belief. Still, while there is now a full array of options for justifying religious belief, nearly every option assumes that a general theory of knowing and a minimal version of theism must be adopted before the rationality of Christian belief can be tackled. In "Crossing the Threshold of Divine Revelation" William J. Abraham confronts both of these assumptions, arguing that epistemology must begin with its particular target of inquiry -- in Abraham's case the full-blooded "canonical theism" of the early, undivided Christian church. Abraham argues, moreover, that special divine revelation forms a crucial threshold at the entrance to the epistemology of Christian belief; accepting divine revelation is the first step to entering a whole new world of knowledge. Sure to intrigue philosophers, theologians, and curious students, Abraham's robust vision of Christian faith provides a creative alternative to many of the current impasses in the philosophy of religion.
