The title of this book can be understood in at least two ways. First of all The Word of God and the Mind of Man is an exploration of the extent to which the human mind can receive and understood to include the communication of truth. The Word of God recalls its classical context--the prologue to John's gospel and the classical Logos doctrine of the early church fathers: all human knowledge is possible because of the unique human participation in the eternal Logos of God, Jesus Christ.
The last two centuries of Christian theology are the record of an evolving attack on the role of knowledge in the Christian faith. The purpose of this book is to challenge the major forms of Christian agnosticism and offer an alternative theory that makes human knowledge about God possible. In other words, is there a relationship between the human mind and the divine mind that is sufficient to ground the communication of truth from God to humans?
Ronald H. Nash was professor of Christian philosophy at Southern Baptist Seminary. He authored more than thirty books and lectured at more than fifty colleges and universities in the United States, Great Britain, and the former Soviet Union.
A timely, important, and truly penetrating work. It makes a significant contribution at the controversial crossroads of debates over divine revelation.
