Religion and Revelation - Paperback - Keith Ward - Oxford University Press
This is an extraordinary book! Keith Ward proposes a beautiful theory based on comparative theology that explains masterfully the origin of all main religious western and eastern traditions, and unites them all in a coherent manner, and shows us that revelation in the primal traditions are not much different than the revelations that we find in the canonical and modern traditions, it is the same god disclosing his divine messages to different cultures and societies along the history of mankind.
His theory is beautiful and straightforward. Keith Ward has truly formed my religious views and beliefs, and i am greatly indebted to him. This is really what we need in our modern, culturally diverse, world, to encourage interfaith dialogue between us so that we can respect each others beliefs and cultures.

He deals excellently with the conundrums involved with comparing andencountering competing claims of religious truth and the ability of humans to find warrant to choose to believe one or the other. Admirably, he treat the religious traditions featured in his work fairly and even-handedly. He has taken great care not to misrepresent any tradition, and before publication, he employed the criticism of many experts in revising his work where it contained any fallacies concerning non-Christian faiths. While some criticism of them is present in his work, he never takes the tone of a polemicist.
His book begins with an examination of the general epistemological difficulties accompanying claims of revelation and then moves on towards specific examinations of Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and a special chapter on Christian revelation and our belief in God's Incarnation.

His last section works out the conclusions of his examination and one is left with a strong argument for a non-provincial theology but, if one is a Christian, a strong grasp of how the doctrine of Incarnation makes Christianity as radical and distinct as it is. Though I didn't agree with him on many small details, I found his general framework to be solid. I highly recommend this book for any Christian seriously wanting to explore revelation in the context of pluralistic market of religions in our post-modern societies. Keith Ward's "Religion and Revelation". Not as engaging as Professor Ward "live" be it lecture, luncheon or tutorial ; but an endeavour worthwhile, nevertheless: Certain to evoke controversy and to stimulate dialogue both within and across these traditions, "Religion and Revelation" will appeal to theologians, philosophers of religion, and anthropologists, in particular; professional scholars and non-specialists, alike.

Table of Contents
Beginning with an examination of the nature of theology, Keith Ward looks at religion in its early historical manifestations, and considers the idea of revelation as found in the great canonical traditions of the religions of the world. In the process, he develops a distinctly Christian idea of revelation as divine self-expression in history. Finally, he explores how conceptions of revelation must be revised in light of modern historical and scientific thought, and proposes a new and positive theology of revelation for the future.
Religion and Revelation includes discussions of the work of most major theologians including Aquinas, Tillich, Barth, Temple, Frazer, and Evans Pritchard. It should be of interest to scholars and students of comparative religion, philosophers of religion, theologians, and anthropologists. His ideas are very accessible, with connections made which are natural and not forced A volume which should find wide use in a variety of courses.
Highly recommended for seminaries and universities. This book is thoroughly recommended as the fertile thoughts of one of Britain's most prodigious and profound theological and philosophical Christian minds writing today.
