Divine Revelation and Human Practice
Responsive and Imaginative Participation
Imprint: Cascade Books
"At a time when so much theology swings between a wooden cerebralism on the one hand, and undisciplined fantasy on the other, a thesis such as this is sorely needed."
--Jeremy Begbie, Ridley Hall, Cambridge and the University of St Andrews
"Acts of discovery and insights of revelation, it has long been assumed, are two entirely separate phenomena: the imaginative power of human minds provides us with the former and God provides us with the latter. Enlarging upon Michael Polanyi's seminal understanding of 'tacit knowing,' the author brilliantly demonstrates the integral involvement of human imagination in the revelatory event. This book represents a major contribution and challenge to both philosophical and theological scholarship in an area that cries out for serious rethinking. Tony Clark represents one of the 'rising stars' in Polanyian scholarship."
--Walter B. Mead, President, The Polanyi Society
"Thoughtful, scholarly, and imaginative contributions are made to quite large and important theological tasks."
--Michael Partridge, School of Divinity, St. Mary's College, University of St. Andrews
