This reissue of a twentieth-century classic by H. Richard Niebuhr emphasizes an understanding of God's revelation that takes seriously both the Bible itself and modern ideas about the nature of history. The book argues that God's revelation is "confessional history." The source and setting of basic Christian convictions lie within a historical framework. By his focus on revelation as personal experience, Niebuhr served as the igniting force for views of future theological movements that are still prevalent more than forty years after his death. First published in 1941, this masterful work is now enhanced with a new introduction by Douglas F. Ottati, which sets Niebuhr's work in the context of his other writings and explores the significance of this book.Table of ContentsI The point of view 1Historical relativism and revelation Religious relativism and revelation Revelation and confessional theology II The story of our life The historical method of Christian faith History as lived and as seen Faith in our history Relations of internal and external history III Reasons of the heart Imagination and reason Interpretation through revelation Progressive revelation IV The deity of God God reveals himself Revelation and the moral law Human value and the God of revelation
