The Weekly Hit List: April 25, 2014

Can We Still Believe the Bible? by Craig Blomberg was reviewed by Living with Faith.

“The author, who is Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Denver Seminary, has written a book aimed not so much to refute sceptics as to guide believers into a balanced understanding and viewpoint of what the questions are and how we can best approach them.

Blomberg makes the point that we find two extremes – ranging from that of religious hardliners demanding unwavering concurrence at one end of the spectrum to unbelieving individuals who try to destroy the faith of believers at the other – and that both extremes are wrong.  Rather, the author shows, we can find a balance in which questions are not only fairly evaluated, but also settled in faith.”
