- Publisher
This book seeks to re-examine important aspects of revelation which have received inadequate attention in recent years. Professor Gunton asks whether there is more to be said for the notion of Christianity as a 'revealed religion' than some of the more simplified recent treatments allow. He analyses the concept of revelation, contends that natural theology and natural revelation are distinct, and considers revelation in relation to scripture and tradition, and the nature of inspiration. In conclusion he provides an outline of a complete, modern theology of revelation.
