Item Description...
David Grant argues that Christians not only can but should use the very best of modern and postmodern ways of thought as we think about our faith. He outlines three significant areas of recent thought that Christians must confront: the rise of critical history, the adavance of natural science, and the reality of postmodern pluralism and then examines how each forces us to rethink our understanding of the Bible, the significance of Jesus, and our ideas of God.

Publishers Description
It is possible, contends C. David Grant, to be a Christian and take modern and postmodern thought seriously. In the first half of his book, Grant explores three major intellectual revolutions of the past two centuries that fundamentally changed the way we think: the emergence of historical consciousness, the discovery of the evolutionary character of the natural world, and the postmodern recognition of diversity and pluralism. Suggesting that these revolutions set the context for all our thinking today, Grant turns in the second half of the book to suggest how they can be integrated into a viable contemporary faith by exploring their impact on Christians' thinking about the Bible, Jesus Christ, and God. He argues that we must accept the human origins of the Bible, the limitations of our historical knowledge about Jesus, and the conceptual character of all our talk about God. Within these parameters, the author sets forth a positive case for a constructive liberal theology, arguing that such an approach is both viable and vital for many contemporary Christians who seek intellectual integrity in their faith. By thinking through the concepts, ideas, and images we use in our faith, we actually come to appreciate and see God's grace as that fundamental mystery that lies at the horizons of our thought and experience.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Thinking. . . and thinking. . . through our faith  Feb 25, 2001
While the information in Thinking Through our Faith may or may not be new for the reader, the information contained therein serves as a discussion startingpoint, with controversial issues arising from the premise that the Bible as is now known was not written by actual witnesses but, rather, by proclaimers of the faith decades later and, thus, must be taken with caution instead of with rigid fundamentalism or the assumption that it is the actual, unbiased word of God. So, if you're looking for a book that questions the roots to the faith of Christianity, this book might be the one for you.
