The Meaning of Revelation
Macmillan, 1960 - 196 من الصفحات
"Christian theology must begin today with revelation because it knows that men cannot think about God save as historic, communal beings and save as believers. It must ask what revelation means for Christians rather than what it ought to mean for all men, everywhere and at all times. And it can pursue its inquiry only by recalling the story of Christian life and analyzing what Christians see from their limited point of view in history and faith." [Chapter One].
