Overview

Written by one of the most significant British theologians of the 20th century this book examines the doctrine of revelation and establishes its proper place in theology. In six lectures Gunton analyses the concept of revelation, contends that natural theology and natural revelation are distinct, and considers revelation in relation to scripture and tradition, as well as the nature of inspiration.

This work remains an important contribution to the ongoing theological debate that argues against reducing Christianity to revelation and ensuring that the Christian faith 'is not to be reduced to knowledge'. For this Cornerstones edition there is a new introduction by Philip G. Ziegler.
