Since thinkers of the Renaissance like Voltaire and Hume, the Christian faith's claim to possess a unique revelation of God has faced numerous challenges. A central issue has been the role of the Bible. Some have continued to defend the view that the Bible, inspired by God, is God's direct self-revelation. Others, however, have argued that God's self-revelation is to be found primarily in divine action or in the person of Jesus Christ, rather than in the Scriptures as such.In a fresh approach, Peter Jensen argues that it is better to follow the biblical categories of the knowledge of God and the gospel than to start from "revelation" as an abstract concept. First, Jensen focuses on revelation, whether special or general, from the viewpoint of the knowledge of God through the gospel. Next, he examines the nature and authority of Scripture and our approach to reading it. Finally, he turns to the revelatory work of the Holy Spirit through illumination. The result is a creative and compelling exposition of the evangelical understanding of revelation for the contemporary scene.The Revelation of God is the eighth volume released of the Contours of Christian Theology series (Gerald Bray, general editor). Contours of Christian Theology is a series of concise introductory textbooks focused on the main themes.Table of ContentsSeries prefacePrefaceIntroduction1. The Gospel as Revelation2.
