Revelation and Reason in Christian Theology edited by Christopher C. Green & David I. Starling
Christopher C. Green & David I. Starling, eds, Revelation and Reason in Christian Theology, Lexham, 2018.
Do revelation and reason contradict?
Throughout the church’s history, Christians have been tempted to make revelation and reason mutually exclusive. But both are essential to a true understanding of the faith.
The inaugural Theology Connect conference―held in Sydney in July 2016―was dedicated to surveying the intersection of revelation and reason. In Revelation and Reason in Christian Theology, Christopher C. Green and David I. Starling draw together the fruit of this conference to provoke sustained, deep reflection on this relationship. The essays―filtered through epistemological, biblical, historical, and dogmatic lenses―critically and constructively contribute to this important and developing aspect of theology.
Each essayist approaches revelation and reason according to the psalmist’s words: “In your light we see light” (Ps 36:9). The light of faith does not obscure truth; rather, it enables us to see truth.
