From the publisher: This book ventures a new interpretation of revelation. The author discusses the major themes in the narrative of revelation, engaging critically with four of the century's giants in theology: Karl Barth, Paul Tillich, Karl Rahner and Carl Henry. These represent the four major phases in the narrative of revelation and Fackre addresses these alternative views in twentieth-century theology through in-depth inquiry and critical analysis. This book challenges reductionist views and strives for an ecumenical understanding that appropriates the insights from a variety of schools of thought.
Revelation is the study of how, when, and where God reveals himself and of what is disclosed. This book is an excellent introduction to revelation that brings its subject into the theological inquiry of the next century.In discussing the major themes of the narrative of revelation, Gabriel Fackre provides an overview of the traditional models of revelation, introducing readers to the work of such twentieth-century giants as Barth, Tillich, Rahner, and Henry. He also provides dialogue with other formative figures, such as Pannenberg, Dulles, Berkouwer, Torrance, and Lindbeck.By focusing on Scripture, while also making reference to the core secondary literature, Fackre leads readers through the key concepts involved in the construction of a biblically centered doctrine of revelation.
