In Wrestling with the Divine, Christopher Knight advances the work of John Polkinghorne and Arthur Peacocke and explores exciting new possibilities for the notion of revelation brought about through scientififc inquiry.
Knight shows how natural processes are the form of divine immanence and the locus of divine action. He probes the psychology of religious experience as a medium of divine revelation. Employing the paradigmatic instance of revelation--the early Christian experience of the risen Jesus--to investigate the psychological basis of revelatory experience, Knight goes on to address its referentiality, authentication, implications for propositional truth, and historical models of revelation. Knight's affirmation of the sacramental and revelatory potential of creation yields a new understanding of natural theology and opens up to other faiths of the world.

Not for true believers
Date:May 1, 2012
This book is based on the writings of John Polkingham and Authur Peacocke. After reading 20 pages and thumbing through the rest, I came to the conclusion that Knight considers himself to be the expert in quote:"the phychology of religious experience as a medium of devine revelation." He seems to attempt to prove through the use of tedious sentences that God depends on natural science. This was a waste of money and will be deposited in my trash bag.
