Joint winner of the Institute of Advanced Christian Studies Book Award 1999


`This book has a single idea, and a very good one. It is that Christians ought not treat their ecclesial canons as if they were epistemic criteria.'
Paul J. Griffiths, (Modern Theology, 2000).
`The great virtue of Abraham's book lies not, I think, in its discussions of particular thinkers (interesting and challenging though these always are) so much as in its clear analysis of what it is to epistemize the canon and of the deleterious effects of doing so. For this alone the book ought to be widely read and used by theologians as a tool for intellecutal self-examination.'
Paul J. Griffiths, (Modern Theology, 2000).
`While this book is aimed primarily at his fellow philosophers and theologians, it deserves a wider readership as well. It is elegantly written and marked by numerous memorable lines and striking turns of phrase.'
Jerry L Walls, Theology Today, January 2000
`This is an unusually ambitious book ... a considerable achievement. It raises important issues, and affords many valuable insights in the course of its historical reflections.'
Maurice Wiles, Journal of Theological Studies
`Every issue and thinker is expounded clearly and concisely, with attention always drawn to strengths as well as weaknesses. To this non-specialist the argument was always accessible and regularly persuasive.'
