Many theologians and Christian philosophers have given considerable attention to the theory of knowledge in recent years. However, the rich resources of the biblical literature on questions of knowledge, especially the knowledge of God, have hardly begun to be mined because biblical scholars have rarely posed such questions to the texts.

In this volume, Catholic and Protestant biblical scholars reflect on what different parts of the Bible may have to contribute to our understanding of knowledge in general, and the knowledge of God in particular. Chapters on Deuteronomy, the Psalms, the Prophets, Wisdom literature, Luke-Acts, Johannine literature, and Paul's letters reveal something of the Bible's diverse and nuanced approach to the issues. The book ends with some reflections on the material from a theologian and from a Christian philosopher.

Author Bio

Robin Parry is a Christian theologian best known for his editing and writing (both as himself and under the pseudonym “Gregory MacDonald”, revealed in 2009) of books such as Universal Salvation? The Current Debate, Worshipping Trinity, and The Evangelical Universalist. The Evangelical Universalist has arguably been his most controversial work, given that Christian Universalism is still widely regarded as incompatible with Evangelicalism.
