Taking the Bible Seriously: Honest Differences about Biblical Interpretation

Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, 01.01.1993 - 177 Seiten

In this book, J. Benton White surveys the many Protestant approaches to the Bible and then focuses on the issues raised by modernist and fundamentalists in the twentieth century. He gives special attention to the Protestants' struggle with the question of how the Bible should be understood. By doing this, he helps individuals examine this crucial question and allows them to draw their own conclusions. White focuses on Martin Luther's affirmation of the "Protestant principle" of the Bible alone, then follows debate up to the present.
