This book is a fresh examination of the authority and reliability of the Bible for the thoughtful Christian believer today. We live in a world of emerging ideas stemming largely from a reassessment of the critical thinking of the Enlightenment and the modern, secular age.The modern world created "a crisis of the Scripture principle" by substituting critical reason as the principle for knowing final truth. The postmodern world looks at things quite differently, focusing on what it means to live in a world where there seems to be no rational certainties, no philosophical proofs, and no final authorities. In the face of these modern and postmodern challenges, these Evangelical authors offer a fresh, informed, and balanced view of the role of the Scriptures in knowing God.
