A Comparative Study of the Positions of Cornelius Van Til, Francis Schaeffer, Carl F. H. Henry, Donald Bloesch, Millar
SEARCHING FOR ABSOLUTES IN A POSTMODERN WORLD. In this postmodern age, truth--especially religious or moral truth--is widely criticized and constantly challenged, yet perhaps more important than ever. It was this realization that led James Emery White to examine the concepts of truth as held by five twentieth -century theologians: - Cornelius Van Til - Millard J. Erickson - Francis A. Schaeffer - Donald G. Bloesch - Carl F. H. Henry White's study exhibits a comprehensive knowledge of these writers and their background. Its originality lies in the way that the five thinkers are brought together and subjected to minute inspection. As a secondary theme, White shows how their approaches to the question of truth relate to the question of the inspiration and authority of Scripture . . . I am delighted that this important study is now made available to a wider public. --from the Foreword by Colin Brown, Fuller Theological Seminary JAMES EMERY WHITE is the president of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, with campuses in South Hamilton (Massachusetts), Boston, Charlotte and Jacksonville.
