Epilogue

This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the key concepts discussed in the preceding chapters of this book. The book examines epistemological considerations from the alleged innate or immediate nature of the natural knowledge of God. The Reformed endorsement of natural theology among Reformed scholastics represents the development of ideas already present among many of the Protestant Reformers. The historical account of the Reformed endorsement of natural theology has also played a crucial role in the author evaluation of the nature and force of objections to natural theology in the Reformed tradition. The conceptual dimension to the work has addressed a pressing need within Reformed theology to clarify the dynamics of its own debate concerning the status of natural theology and the epistemic efficacy of human reason. According to the dogmatic model of natural theology, theistic arguments represent the reconstruction and systematic development by the Christian, under the guidance of special revelation.
