Week 8- Bevans, Chapter 8

The transcendental model begins in the world of the subject; in this model, one begins with a search for the authenticity of self. A person asks such questions as, “How well do I know myself?” With this understanding of the authentic self, one is able then to also understand others in one’s own culture in a deeper sense. The knowledge of the personal leads to knowledge of the general. Revelation is seen in this model as an event that happens when one opens up oneself to God. Also, the way one learns is universal.
