Revelation as Testimony

£9.99 £12.99


Our knowledge of God, according to the historic Christian tradition, is mainly testimonial: we know certain important truths about God and divine things because God himself has revealed them to us. In recent philosophical theology, however, this traditional view is often dismissed. But doing so is a mistake, says Mats Wahlberg, who asserts that the understanding of revelation as divine testimony is both intellectually viable and indispensable to Christian theology. Criticising the currently common idea that revelation should be construed exclusively in terms of Gods self-manifestation in history or through inner experience, Wahlberg discusses the concept of divine testimony in the context of how any knowledge of God is possible. He draws on resources from contemporary analytic philosophy of testimony especially John McDowell and Nicholas Wolterstorff to argue for the traditional view of revelation as divine testimony
