General Revelation?

Vanhoozer, in The Drama of Doctrine, Chapter 8, page 248, says, "God is knowable only to the extent that he gives himself to be known under the form of Jesus' humanity and the human words of Scripture." Does that leave any room at all for general revelation?

Even if Vanhoozer would qualify that statement in some way that allows for general revelation, I'm still dissatisfied with the evangelical tendency to describe God as a being separated from all other "sciences" than theology.

  1. You'd be much happier with Van Til and Bavinck on this count. Perhaps Vanhoozer is following Barth here; I think it's symptomatic of Christianity failing to get over Kant (as per the critiques of Schaeffer et al.).


I love to hear feedback!
