General Revelation And Special Revelation

"Special revelation is God's disclosure to mankind of Himself, His world, His plans for mankind, etc., by means of direct (or supernatural) information, usually in verbal form. This information was conveyed to His prophets and subsequently written down in the Bible.4 General revelation is God's disclosure to mankind of Himself, His world, and the nature of mankind itself by means of indirect (i.e. providential or nonsupernatural), nonverbal information. This information is conveyed to all mankind, both externally through the universe and internally through human conscience.5"

Evidence for Faith: Deciding the God Question, contributor Robert C. Newman, p. 95
