Revelation: Towards a Christian Interpretation of God's Self-Revelation in Jesus Christ
Gerald O'Collins skilfully distinguishes between past (or 'foundational') revelation, present (or 'dependent') revelation, and future (or 'eschatological') revelation. He expounds with ecumenical sensitivity the complex relationship between tradition and scripture. O'Collins moves into controversial areas by insisting that the divine self- revelation takes place only when received by human faith and that 'outside revelation there is no salvation (extra revelationem nulla salus'). This volume offers a coherent account of God's self-revelation, which can serve as a basis for all that follows in theology and for dialogue with those who follow 'other' living faiths or none at all.O'Collins extends and enriches what he has proposed in earlier books and articles about the characteristics of God's self-revelation.
In the book, [O'Collins] exhibits his usual erudition. He knows and uses the Scriptures to great effect. He shows detailed knowledge about classical, modern, and contemporary discussions of revelation, especially including the Church Fathers and Dei Verbum from Vatican II ... Revelation is a wonderful book. It is orthodox, incisive, and well written. It deserves a wide reading by scholars and laypeople alike. (Stephen T. Davis, Theological Studies)A superb book and an absolute joy to read (Andrew Torrance, Expository Times)
