Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The last few decades have seen a revolution in debates about the rationality of Christian belief. Among the array of current options for justifying religious belief, however, nearly every one assumes that a general theory of knowing and a minimal version of theism must be adopted before the rationality of Christian belief can be tackled.

In "Crossing the Threshold of Divine Revelation" William J. Abraham confronts both of these assumptions, arguing that epistemology must begin with its particular target of inquiry -- in Abraham's case the full-blooded "canonical theism" of the early, undivided Christian church. He argues, moreover, that special divine revelation forms a crucial threshold at the entrance to the epistemology of Christian belief. Sure to intrigue philosophers, theologians, and curious students, Abraham's robust vision of Christian faith provides a creative solution to many of the current difficulties in philosophy and theology.

William J. Abraham is Albert Cook Outler Professor of Theology and Wesley Studies at Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University. His other books include Canon and Criterion in Christian Theology: From the Fathers to Feminism (Oxfor

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book by a great author Dr. Billy Abraham of Perkins Theology School at SMU in Dallas, Texas. Billy explains how critics and skeptics have been successful in attacking Christianity and what their chief weapon is, and how it can be defeated. He goes on to show the value of Divine Revelation in Christianity defense and effective conversion of doubters and skeptics. There is a wonderful short story of "Ms. Convert" that shows the continuum from just good person, doing good things to deep belief and effective action as a Christian. Dr. Abraham makes a compelling case for "canonical theology" in this book. This should be a text book and required reading for every Christian theology student. I am a layman, but newly returned to the Church, and I read the book after hearing a lecture series by Dr. Abraham...and I am ever more glad I did hear him speak and read his book. Worth the money.
