Mar 04, Jon rated it it was amazing Shelves: christian-non-fiction. I found this book to be extremely helpful and thought-provoking. It provides an overview of the 5 most prevalent schools of thought in the 20th century regarding God's self-revelation to humankind.
The first half of the book surveys these 5 models, highlighting some of their leading thinkers and assessing strengths and weaknesses. The second half of the book presents Dulles's own tool--symbolic mediation--that he uses to further explore the doctrine of revelation and to harmonize the 5 popular m I found this book to be extremely helpful and thought-provoking.
The second half of the book presents Dulles's own tool--symbolic mediation--that he uses to further explore the doctrine of revelation and to harmonize the 5 popular models. I think the first half is pretty accessible, and I'd recommend it to anyone interested in Christian theology or 20th-century religious thought. Dulles does not ultimately tip his hand toward or against any one of the 5 models, but stays disciplined in giving a balanced survey. Furthermore, because each school of thought cut across denominational lines, he describes how each one expressed itself in both Catholic and Protestant traditions.
The second half was a little less accessible. While I still loved it, I had to work to get through certain sections. The idea of symbolic mediation, which is so crucial to the second half of this book, is very broad and abstract. I would likely only recommend the second half of this book to people who, like me, are extremely abstract in their thought and who like to take deep dives into theological reflection.
Mar 18, Daniel Crouch rated it liked it. Though the writing is dry, it's an interesting survey of how Christians have understood the concept of revelation over the last years. Nov 22, Alan Metela rated it it was amazing. Aug 08, Marc rated it liked it. A classic and lucid presentation of the ways in which different Christian traditions and even the same tradition can have different ways of looking at revelation. He highlights their strengths and weaknesses in a balanced way.
In the second part of the book, he seeks to use the notion of symbol as a cipher to show how all revelation is essentially mediated by symbols and that all the models demonstrate this to some extent.
He also holds such a symbolic mediation corrects their failings. He applies this approach to several aspects of a theology of revelation, including interpreting the bible, understanding Christ, what role the church plays in mediating revelation, how Christian revelatin relates to other religions, and how it relates to an eschatological perspective.
He also seeks to show that faith is a response to revelation and that such faith can be rational, though not rationalistic. While this text is not putting forth a full systematic theology of revelation, its more modest purpose of helping define the landmarks in this area of theology is accomplished well enough that it still remains a key text for the field. Oct 18, Matt Mancini rated it liked it. Not a terrible introduction to some of the ideas of revelatory theology, but rather short-sighted in a number of areas.
Notably, Dulles espouses a very narrow interpretation of what he calls the "Revelation as Doctrine" model, which he associates with conservative evangelicalism.
Granted, they're models, and therefore broadly representative, but the irony is that in his narrow representation of the doctrinal model, he fails to apprehend that the evangelical model, rightly understood, actually en Not a terrible introduction to some of the ideas of revelatory theology, but rather short-sighted in a number of areas.
Granted, they're models, and therefore broadly representative, but the irony is that in his narrow representation of the doctrinal model, he fails to apprehend that the evangelical model, rightly understood, actually encompasses the strengths of every other model he sets forth.
Not a terrible read, but not exactly recreational reading, either. Unless you are really into theology. Jun 21, Charlie rated it really liked it Shelves: catholic , systematic-theology. The first half is a primer orienting the reader to five contemporary models of revelation.
The second half argues for the author's own view, symbolic mediation. For some readers, the whole book will be very useful. For others, particularly non-Catholics, the first half by itself could serve as a starting point for discussing the issue.

Survey of Avery Dulles’s Models of Revelation
In this book, he describes different models or constructs that he believes God reveals Himself and His Will to believers. Can the Unfathomable ever be scaled down to a single, limited view of how He works? Is there a model that can be used for finite beings to know an infinite God? He chooses five different views that have been prominent since the 20 th century and breaks them down into theological models. As Dulles breaks down each model, we shall see how limited his evangelical model is and why it needs to be redefined. This model is understood on the analogy of authoritative teaching where God is seen as the infallible teacher who communicates knowledge by speech and writing to His recipients, as pupils.

Critique of Models of Revelation by Avery Dulles
Dulles opens his book by outlining his methodology and assessment criteria. He asserts that the study of revelation must take place before the assumption of any specific doctrinal theology can be affirmed. He holds that reason cannot lead one to revelation; rather, the existence of revelation must be held presuppositionally. As per his methodology, Dulles does not attempt determine if a model is correct, instead he sets himself to the task of determining which model best explains the data or is the most accurate in its description. First, Dulles assesses propositional revelation from both the Evangelical and Catholic standpoints. In this model, revelation is content that is delivered through speech to people who were commissioned by God to be its recipients. Thus, revelation is knowledge of God in verbal propositional form.
