978-0-8254-4470-8 • $19.99 Paperback • 5.5 x 8.5 • 336 pages Christian Theology / General Kregel Publications • Rights: Worldwide March 26, 2019 How human limitations can distort biblical interpretation Theology is based on God’s true and unchanging Word, but does the Bible supply an unwavering foundation for spiritual certainties? Perhaps surprisingly, Brush contends that it does not, because, like science, it is a human discipline and subject to our limitations of knowledge, interpretation, and objectivity. In part one, Brush unpacks this contention, showing how Christians both past and present have arrived at conclusions that actually run counter to biblical teaching, and how these interpretive viewpoints have changed over time. In part two, he makes the case that flawed theological positions have resulted in views that needlessly conflict with science, and that these clashes can be resolved with more accurate formulations. Brush evenly evaluates questions including the age of the earth, the origin of life, and the end of time. Christians who wish to better understand the relationship between their faith and science will be encouraged by the great harmony that Brush sees between scientific findings and bib- lical teaching. As he guides readers into an awareness of the inherent limitations of our knowledge, believers can cultivate greater humility regarding these contested issues. Nigel Brush is professor of geology at Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio. He is also the author of The Limitations of Scientific Truth.
