Evangelicals and truth
A Creative Proposal For A Postmodern Age
As the traditional concept of truth collapses into relativism, what do evangelicals mean when they speak of 'the truth'? Peter Hicks explores the ways in which key evangelical thinkers - from Edwards and Wesley to the present - have conceived of truth. He describes evangelical responses to the current climate, particularly in the area of hermeneutics. Finally, he proposes a distinctive evangelical epistemology as a valid and credible alternative to relativism, showing how it fits with our personhood as creatures in God's image.
