In this important and enlightening book, Christopher Knight advances the work of John Polkinghorne and Arthur Peacocke and explores exciting new possibilities for the notion of revelation. Knight shows how natural processes are the form of divine immanence and the locus of divine action. He probes the psychology of religious experience as a medium of divine revelation. Employing the paradigmatic instance of revelation--the early Christian experience of the risen Jesus--to investigate the psychological basis of revelatory experience, Knight goes on to address its referentiality, authentication, implications for propositional truth, and historical models of revelation. Knight's affirmation of the sacramental and revelatory potential of creation yields a new understanding of natural theology and opens up to other faiths of the world.
-Publisher

Christopher Knight uses the notion of revelation to ask whether scientifically literate people need to be as simplistic in their religion as they are sophisticated in their science. Knight extends the dialogue begun in John Polkinghorne's and Arthur Peacocke's work to explore new possibilities. Their stress on natural processes as the form of divine immanence and the locus of divine action opens the way to Knight's rethinking the psychology of religious experience as a medium of divine revelation.
