Revelation and Grace
Our globalized world, with its increasingly pluralistic societies, necessitates a theological framework that enables Christians to embrace their neighbors – with respect, understanding, and love – without compromising the essential components of their own faith.
In Revelation and Grace, Dr. Philip Djung explores the ways in which Hendrik Kraemer’s theology of religions offers the church such a framework. By placing Kraemer in conversation with other twentieth-century Dutch Reformed theologians, namely Herman Bavinck, Johan H. Bavinck, and Abraham Kuyper, Dr. Djung allows the doctrine of revelation and grace to inform his interpretation of Kraemer’s work. He provides a critical assessment of Kraemer’s theology, illustrating the significance of Kraemer’s commitment to the uniqueness of Christ and the necessity of Christian mission, while advocating for the need to amend certain aspects of Kraemer’s perspective to more fully reflect God’s presence in world religions.
