An exploration of the interactions among God, the creation, and Scripture.

The first part seems pretty basic and a bit boring/bland to get through: an exploration from the text regarding what it has to say about God's involvement in Scripture and what Scripture says about God's involvement in the world and among people. The Catholic nature of the authors is demonstrated by their reliance on apocryphal literature at this point. It didn't seem necessary.

The second part, however, gets much more interesting and fantastic. In it the authors do well at exploring the difficulties of the modern mindset regarding ontology and cognition thanks to Descartes, Kant et al. As could be expected, the authors find more coherence and a way forward through Thomas Aquinas and as later explicated by W. Norris Clarke and Robert Sokolowski. The authors posit an effective way of looking at how we can know through sensation and intellection with a view towards intelligibility. The involvement of God in the creation is affirmed as well as the Distinction between God and His creation; the relational unity of God and with His people is also well described, and how God makes Himself known in Scripture as well. Even though Scripture speaks of past events the reader is welcomed to participate in God's economy through them.

Ultimately a very good read, especially the second half.
