Disputed Issues (Contending for Christian Faith in Today’s Academic Setting)


DisputedIssuesDisputed Issues (Contending for Christian Faith in Today’s Academic Setting)
, Stephen T. Davis, Baylor University Press

This is an outstanding apologetic by Dr. Stephen Davis, Pitzer professor of Philosophy at Claremont McKenna College. He engages with many of the critical arguments made against Christianity at the academic level, in our day. He understands what those in the academic world are thinking, and ably refutes their arguments. Sixteen chapters contend with various lines of criticism against the Bible including: Should We Believe The Jesus Seminar?; Have the Infidels Refuted the Resurrection?; Should Evangelicals Be Pluralists?; Is “Survival of Death” Coherent? “Disputed Issues should be required reading for all thoughtful students, philosophers, theologians, and seminarians who are interested in exploring the cogency of Christian faith in light of contemporary criticism”.~ Charles Taliaferro, Professor Of Philosophy, St. Olaf College.

Click on the image above to see excerpts from an interview with Dr. Shannon talking about the book of Revelation in his book “The Scroll With Seven Seals”.

The Introduction and Background sections lay the groundwork for a careful, informed reading of the book. In an explanation of the contents of Revelation many of the problems that the reader will encounter are clarified to lead to enjoyable reading and easier understanding. The process that led to the contents of the book was inductive study; not imposing pre-conceived concepts on Revelation, but taking care at every turn to present the message contained in the book as clearly as possible. As a result, it presents a fresh perspective on Revelation. Many of the warnings of Revelation are seen, not in a fatalistic sense, but as presenting the hope of redemption to those who will heed its message. Revelation begins in the first century with the early church, proceeds through history until the return of Christ, and warns of cataclysmic events prior to that return.
It is essentially a book of hope for Christians that their Savior will be with them in whatever trials and difficulties are ahead, and that an absolutely glorious future awaits them in Christ’s coming kingdom. It is a book of hope for the unbelieving, in that it warns of the consequences of persisting in unbelief and consistently affirms God’s invitation to believe in him and drink of the waters that he generously offers.
