(p.333) 12 Conclusion

Richard Swinburne (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This book has argued that the Christian revelation satisfies the four tests of a genuine revelation from God very well: the content of the original revelation is plausible, it was confirmed by a miracle, it has been interpreted by a church in a plausible way, and the interpretation is plausibly true. No other purported revelation satisfies these tests nearly as well. There is plenty of scope for the Christian Church to develop its interpretations yet further.

Keywords:   miracle, the Church, God, plausible
