Product Description

Seeing both liberal and fundamentalist Christians imprisoned in the epistemological presuppositions of the Enlightenment, Bishop Newbigin attempts to unmask the unspoken and concealed conditions that have intimidated and effectively held Christians in check. The best form of apologetics, he contends, is the preaching of the particular yet universal gospel.

Lesslie Newbigin is a prominent leader of the ecumenical movement and has served as general secretary of the International Missionary Council and as associate general secretary fo the World Council of Churches.

Publisher's Description

Looking to end the divisive conflict that has raged between Christians who attack each other either as "liberals" or as "fundamentalists," Newbigin here gives a historical account of the roots of this conflict in order to begin laying the foundation for a middle ground that will benefit the Christian faith as a whole. What results is a perspective that allows Christians to confidently affirm the gospel as public truth in our pluralistic world.
