Need to Know

John G. Stackhouse Jr.

Oxford University Press

Christian thinking in our time is often characterized by bad habits: conservatism that resists new knowledge, compartmentalization that keeps different kinds of knowledge separate, mysticism that uses knowledge only as a means to an experiential end, and forms of liberal thought that give too little authority to Scripture. A new model is needed, one that draws on the orthodox models of Christian thought in the past (such as the Protestant quadrilateral) and modifies them in the light of the best of epistemological explorations of the contemporary world.

Keywords:   conservatism, liberalism, mysticism, compartmentalization, Protestant quadrilateral
