Religion and Revelation 1993–1994

J S Keith Ward

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

Ward presents an investigation into the nature, sources and limits of revelation with particular reference to the Christian tradition. Wardís general conclusion is that there exists an intelligible, natural and defensible notion of revelation. The main elements of this notion can be found in a number of diverse religious traditions. Ward suggests that each tradition engage in an open and, in some important way, convergent interaction with others, and at the same time preserve the main elements of its own distinctive witness. He articulates a concept of revelation that is true to the main orthodox Christian tradition and that is also open to a fruitful interaction with other traditions, as well as to the developing corpus of scientific knowledge.
