But Is It All True? The Bible and the Question of Truth
Edited by Alan G. Padgett and Patrick R. Keifert
From The Publisher:
Fundamental to Christian faith is the assumption that the Bible presents a true and reliable portrait of God and Gods will for the world. Yet thoughtful believers and nonbelievers alike continue to inquire into the nature and veracity of Scripture, with the result that the Bible is viewed today as everything from infallible to mythological.
This significant book tackles the central question of what Christianity means when it claims that the Bible is true. Written by nine Christian scholars from the disciplines of theology, biblical studies, and philosophy, these penetrating chapters reject stale, simplistic answers in favor of fresh, invigorating perspectives that leave ample room for dialogue. In addition, several contributors helpfully move the discussion from reflection to practical application, explaining the role of biblical truth in preaching and theological education.
