Vision, Tradition, Interpretation examines with critical originality the various disciplines within the study of religion, and the role of 'theological vision' in relation to these approaches. There is a relentless probing of the meaning of the theological process within the wide range of religious forms and experience. 'Interpenetrative dependence' is posited between Theology and Religious Studies, resulting in a critique of both. This remains a highly distinctive study, with both enthusiastic and critical responses by reviewers in numerous languages. The comment in a review in Nouvelle Revue Theologique typifies the enthusiasts: 'une erudition vaste et nuancee.'
