    This thesis explores revelation in the contemporary vistas of twentieth and twenty first century theology through the trope of seeking vision. Revelation is deemed to be unfolding within the dynamic interplay of both particular views and wider global, ecological and technological influences. The influence of postmodernity is also considered, inviting observation of the minority view, and the ‘other’ as pertinent vantage points.
    This thesis uses metaphors of sight and blindness, light and glory as indicative of horizons and limits for revelation. The views of theologians and scholars like Avery Dulles, Mary C. Grey, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Vladimir Lossky, John M. Hull, Jean Luc Marion and Wesley Wildman, are explored to convey diversity in the ways revelation can be described.
    The thesis concludes by inviting the reader to pay attention and to continue to seek vision as God is revealed now, and into the future.
