dc.description.abstract Probably one of the most fertile areas within Christian theology has been that of general revelation and the closely allied topic of natural theology. Theologians have historically denied or affirmed to varying degrees both of these concepts. This paper seeks to initially define general revelation and natural theology and then provide a brief historical survey from St. Augustine to Karl Barth of this locus of systematic theology so as to raise awareness of the issues integral to any discussion thereof. The scriptural evidence for general revelation is then explored to see if there is any basis for a limited natural theology. Finally, the understanding)f two prominent contemporary philosophical theologians (A. Plantinga and L. Newbigin) as to the relationship between faith and reason are interacted with to see if there might not be a place for a qualified natural theology. en
