Peter Jensen proposes that one should follow the biblical categories of the knowledge of God through the gospels rather than begin from revelation as an abstract concept that might lead one to the Holy Ghost.

In modern times, the Christian faith's claim to possess a unique revelation of God has faced numerous challenges. A central issue has been the role of the Bible. While some have continued to defend the view that the Bible, inspired by God, is his self-revelation in a direct way, others have argued that God's revelation is to be found primarily in his actions, or in the person of Jesus Christ, rather than in the Scriptures as such. In a fresh approach, Peter Jensen argues that it is better to follow the biblical categories of the knowledge of God and the gospel, rather than to start from 'revelation' as an abstract concept. First Dr Jensen focuses on revelation, whether 'special' or 'general', from the viewpoint of the knowledge of God through the gospel. Next, he examines the nature and authority of Scriptures and our approach to reading it. Finally, he turns to the revelatory work of the Holy Spirit through illumination. The result is a creative and compelling exposition of the evangelical understanding of revelation for the contemporary scene.
