Written by a James Barr, a professor of the Hebrew Bible, Biblical Faith and Natural Theology is the edited version of his Gifford Lectures. Taking on Karl Barth, who denied the possibility of Natural Theology, Barr demonstrates that Biblical Revelation not only condones Natural Theology, uses Natural Theology, but, in many cases, is based upon Natural Theology. This is a masterful book that must be read by anyone who wishes to enter into the discussion about Natural Theology.
