      Abstract

      In '"They Recognised Him; and He Became Invisible to Them"' (Modern Theology, 18 [2002], pp. 145-52), Marion uses the gospel account of the journey to Emmaus to argue that faith provides a conceptual interpretation of revelation after it has occurred. This response to Marion argues that what he describes is only a derivative sense of faith. In its primary sense, faith is hermeneutic; faith is an existential commitment that makes it possible for revelation to be made manifest. Contra Marion, revelation does not simply impose itself on us; rather, it must be actively received and recognised in the meaning-filled world of a recipient's faith.
