In fact, Wolterstorff’s own detailed analysis of mediated divine speech is very close to Barth’s, despite his questioning Barth’s status as the great theologian of the Word of God. He too stresses divine agency in and through the words of scripture and their reception. He has an interesting section on ‘double agency discourse’, showing how someone with authority can act through a representative or a deputy, and suggesting that God might be thought of as ‘appropriating’ the words of the prophet or apostle, or indeed the Psalmist, in order to speak to men and women today.

251, Plantinga explicitly endorses Wolterstorff’s account of the way in which the Bible constitutes divine speech and divine communication (Plantinga, too, it seems, makes light of Wolterstorff’s distinction between discourse and revelation). But he does so in the context of an epistemology of faith, taken over from Calvin, whereby it is the ‘inward instigation of the Holy Spirit’ which enables Christians to see the truth of what scripture says. When humans are functioning properly in accordance with God’s design plan, this is how the great truths of the Gospel are revealed.

But it is clearly crucial to the idea of revelation being mediated by a providential sequence of historical events and developments, culminating in the life story of a first-century Jewish rabbi. This is made crystal clear in an excellent and thorough study of revelation by a philosopher of religion whose name will feature frequently in these pages, Keith Ward. Ward’s Religion and Revelation36 is the first of four books on comparative theology in which central doctrines are explored in the context of the worldwide history of religions.
