Description

Christian theology is widely thought of as nothing more than a game involving the juggling of words. The conviction that it is the study of God's revelation of himself, and an indispensable basis for the understanding of Christian thought and practice, is dismissed. Paul Helm will argue that this has happened because the place of human nature in theology - our senses and our intellect - has been disregarded. If theology is to regain its place as providing objective knowledge of God we must recover the conviction that grace builds upon nature.
