Product description


`Review from previous edition This book succeeds very well in mapping the major issues involved in establishing the credibility of central Christian claims about divine revelation. ... In an admirable fashion Swinburne clearly distinguishes revelation from biblical inspiration, highlights the role of the Church in establishing the canon, and insists on the indispensable place of credal and doctrinal texts in biblical interpretation. ... This book would be a first-rate text for graduate (and superior undergraduate) students concerned with major issues of revelation. For that reason alone I was very glad to see it issued simultaneously in hardback and paperback.' Heythrop Journal

`The issue is pursued with the clarity and philosophical precision for which Swinburne's work is rightly renowned ... The case that Swinburne argues is a careful, logical one.' Journal of Theological Studies

`Written to the highest academic standards ... should be included in libraries catering for postgraduate courses in the philosophy of religion.' Theological Book Review

`Swinburne has once again produced an outstanding work in philosophy of religion.' The Philosophical Review

`Historically rich but theologically controversial book.' Faith and Philosophy

About the Author

Richard Swinburne is a Fellow of the British Academy and Emeritus Nolloth Professor of the Philosophy of the Christian Religion at the University of Oxford.
