This volume offers an exploration of the symbolic structure and mediation of revelation as understood by the Jesuit theologian Avery Dulles. It addresses Dulles' presuppositions about the nature of human knowing and how this radically affects his development of a theology of revelation. It explores both the social and the symbolic dimensions of revelation, most specifically in the area of the unique relationship that the self-disclosure of the divine demands. It also looks at Dulles' presuppositions regarding the significance of revelation for the varying dimensions of theology - specifically, the notion of communication and revelation as such.
