Item description for The Scripture Principle by Clark H. Pinnock...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Scripture Principle?

A much needed perspective from a thoughtful theologian  Apr 18, 2002
Clark Pinnock wrote this book several years ago, yet I would suggest that it is essential reading for evangelicals still today who hold a so-called "inerrant" Scripture. He does this without losing what he sees as the essential "Scripture Principle" that must remain if one is still to be called a Christian.

What Pinnock does is opens up the fields of form and historical criticism as being useful fields for the evangelical without compromising their faith. He shows that Scripture is entirely reliable for the use for which it was intended, but our modern view of documents and "scientific" objectivism have caused many evangelicals to enter intot he realm of fundamentalism rather than thoughtful, honest inquiry.

There is no doubt that some would be uncomfortable reading this book, as it would perhaps make someone feel that the result is a "low" view of Scripture. Rather, Pinnock wishes to "walk the line" between decetic inerrantists and liberal theologians who wish to do away with orthodox Christian beliefs.

The concepts really is not that hard. If we believe that God has spokent through the Bible, then what is wrong about bringing honest questions to it as we read it?

Read and Enjoy!
