Acknowledgements

I am grateful to the editor of this series and to a number of readers for Blackwell for their helpful comments on the first draft of this book. I have tried to take account of their advice in revising the text. I have borrowed and reworked some parts of my essay, 'The Communication of Divine Revelation', from Alan G. Padgett (ed.), Reason and the Christian Religion. Essays in Honour of Richard Swinburne (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1994), pp. 143—60 for chapter 2; some parts of my essay 'Does the doctrine of the atonement make moral sense?', from Brian Hebblethwaite, Ethics and Religion in a Pluralistic Age (Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1997), pp. 77—93 for chapter 6; and some parts of my book, The Christian Hope (Basingstoke: Marshall, Morgan & Scott, 1984) and articles on 'Immortality' and 'Soul' from Adrian Hastings (ed.), The Oxford Companion to Christian Thought (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2000), for chapter 7. I am grateful to the publishers for permitting me to do this.
