There is an appearance of humility in the protestation that the truth is much greater than any one of us can grasp, but if this is used to invalidate all claims to discern the truth it is in fact an arrogant claim to a kind of knowledge which is superior to the knowledge which is available to fallible human beings. We have to ask, ‘How do you know that the truth about God is greater than what is revealed to us in Jesus?’

—Leslie Newbigin, The Gospel in a Pluralist Society, p. 170
