Introducing the Edward Carnell Library (Nine Titles Listed Inside)
Rather than mounting a rational proof for God's existence, the author advocates here a "spiritual approach to God." This calls for an exercise not only of one's rational faculties, but also of the spiritual.
The four parts of this book, originally published in 1957, treat the development and application of "knowledge by moral acceptance," the process of becoming acquainted with the person of God, and concluding inferences and problems.
Endorsements & Reviews-
"Edward John Carnell was--in my estimation--the brightest and the best of the neo-evangelical leaders. He was a courageous thinker who was not afraid to think new thoughts in the service of biblical orthodoxy. The Carnell Library is a gift to today's evangelical movement." --Richard J. Mouw President, Fuller Seminary
"[Carnell's] fertile mind and ready pen blazed fresh theological trails as he sought to defend and proclaim the Christian faith as a world and life view." --David Allan Hubbard Former President of Fuller Theological Seminary
"In this welcome collection of Carnell books, we are offered an inside view of a radical shift in American religious thinking -- the emergence of twentieth-century evangelicalism out of Protestant fundamentalism." --Rudolph Nelson, author of The Making and Unmaking of an Evangelical Mind: The Case of Edward Carnell
