"In this insightful book, Steven Sherman explores issues that are at the heart of current debates about the foundationalist epistemology that has long held sway in evangelical theology. He does so, not only with philosophical and theological savvy, but also with a deep commitment to the truth of the Gospel."

"Significant changes are taking place today in Evangelical theology, especially in the area of theological epistemology. This book represents a very important contribution for helping us understand the emerging shape of the Evangelical theological voice. Steven B. Sherman provides the reader with an excellent overview of recent developments in chronicling the rise of post-conservative evangelical theology. He helpfully uses the intellectual journey of Clark Pinnock to illustrate shifts in thinking that are occurring, and then provides an in-depth analysis of the rise of foundationalism and its subsequent critique by recent scholars. His constructive proposal for reframing theological epistemology draws creatively on the work of missiologist Lesslie Newbigin. This is a solid piece of scholarship and a substantive contribution to the literature on the Evangelical movement."

"Revitalizing Theological Epistemology grapples courageously and innovatively with core issues that confront evangelical thought and practice today. Using the writings of Clark Pinnock and Lesslie Newbigin as evaluative lenses, Sherman traces the emergence and essence of a postconservative theological epistemology, considering important factors leading reformist evangelicals toward a more holistic, communal approach to the knowledge of God. Sherman's focused analysis and assessment concludes with a modest proposal for developing a revitalizing theological epistemology. I recommend it for the study of contemporary theology and culture."
