The Philosophy of Revelation: The Stone Lectures for 1908-1909 Princeton Theological Seminary is written by and compiled by the Dutch theologian, Doctor of theology and professor in the Free University of Amsterdam; Herman Bavinck. While only six of the lectures were actually given at Princeton Theological Seminary, the other four printed here were also written in response to the invitation by the Seminary to present on the topic of theology. This publication contains all ten lectures for the reader's enjoyment, whether they're students of theology, theologians themselves, or just individuals with a passing interest in theology.
Bavinck's engrossing lectures explore philosophy and the bible, where the two intersect and how both can be utilized to illuminate the other. He establishes a theme for the book with his first article on "The Idea of a Philosophy of Revelation" which argues that the philosophy of revelation can correlate with the thought and life of humanity as a whole. His lectures on revelation and philosophy continue along the established theme, exploring how philosophy and religion apply to history, life, culture, and nature.
The Philosophy of Revelation: The Stone Lectures for 1908-1909 Princeton Theological Seminary is an interesting read as Bavinck utilizes several lectures to illuminate the intertwined nature of religion and philosophy. His belief that philosophy and religion are at the core of not just culture and history but of man himself are exciting ideas to consider. This is a great book for individuals who are particularly interested in fields of study concerning religion, philosophy, or theology.
