This chapter discusses the opinion of Theodore Beza on the uses and abuses of natural revelation. It is apparent that in the course of Beza's writings, nature provided him some knowledge of God's wisdom, rule, goodness, power, and righteousness. It explains Beza' view that natural revelation does not refer exclusively to nature external to man but also includes nature internal to man, such as psychological constitution. Though he admits the existence of natural revelation, he neither admits its soteriological sufficiency nor ignores the Augustinian doctrine of the Fall and the consequent noetic effects of sin.

Keywords:   power, natural revelation, nature, God, righteousness
