Epistemology for the Rest of Us

Philosophia Christi 10 (2):353-361 (2008)

William Abraham’s “canonical theism” calls into question standard strategies in philosophy of religion which strain out the particularities of Christian faith, distilling a “mere theism” and position Christian faith within a broader, “general” epistemology. I evaluate Abraham’s call for a philosophical approach that honors the thick particularity of Christian faith and makes room for the unique epistemological status of revelation. I conclude that Abraham’s promising project could be extended to more radically call into question the “intellectualism” that characterizes contemporary philosophy of religion.
