This is an important study for all those interested in questions about revelation and the nature of Christian theology. The late Professor Gunton asks in this work whether there is more to be said for the notion of Christianity as a 'revealed religion' than some of the more simplified treatments allow. He analyses the concept of revelation, illustrating its importance for understanding even beyond religious purposes. He contends that natural theology and natural revelation are distinct categories and examines why they are so often confused. Revelation is considered in relation to scripture and tradition, and the nature of inspiration. In conclusion he provides an outline of a complete, modern theology of revelation.
