Review of Metaphysics 10 (1):172-172 (1956)

Abstract
A brief survey of recent Protestant thought on the nature and meaning of revelation, touching on such topics as man's need of Divine self-disclosure, the historical nature of God's self-revelation, and the distinction between revelation conceived as a body of truths about God and as confrontation with God. The author offers some suggestions as to how we should conceive of the demanded response to revelation--faith--and also examines the claims for Scripture as the sole and infallible repository of revelation. A brief historical essay serves as introductory chapter.--C. M.
