From 'Christian Commitment'
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. ""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 Edward John Carnell (1919-1967) was an ordained Baptist minister who served for three years as Associate Professor of Philosophy of Religion at Gordon Divinity School. He taught apologetics at Fuller Theological Seminary from 1948 to 1967 and served there as the second president from 1954 to 1959.
“In pleading for the biblical view of God and the world the author has mustered his materials with great care and has shown his readiness to address himself to critical issues.”
—The Evangelical Quarterly
“For an understanding of the philosophical and theological viewpoint of contemporary fundamentalism this is probably the best available book. . . . Vigorous in both thought and style, it is a sturdy defense of the orthodox interpretation of biblical theism.”
—Religious Book Club Bulletin
“The author submits a strong and convincing case for supernaturalistic theism. . . . He vigorously maintains that we have ample evidence for our confidence in supernatural revelation, miracles, a divinely-provided atonement, and the redemptive working of God in human history.”
—Southern Presbyterian Journal
