About-

Biblical inspiration and interpretation in conflict?

Evangelicals assert that the Bible is the infallible source and sole authority for Christian beliefs and living. This premise is currently under fire from social and cultural mores AND, more importantly, from differences of biblical interpretation. Contradictory opinions have arisen on several issues.

—What exactly does the Bible claim?

—What is the rightful role of women in the church and at home?

—How do Christians evaluate homosexuality (is it always a sin)?

—What is the church’s role in social ethics?

Evangelicals at an Impasse considers these burning issues and offers helpful guidelines. Robert K. Johnston seeks to bridge the gaps among the biblical writers, the church fathers, and contemporary humanity. He offers an effective way for Christians, and more specifically, evangelicals, to understand the Bible as it relates to theology, tradition, and culture. Johnston considers the issues, the facts surrounding them, social practices, the pros and cons on each question, and provides striking insights in his conclusions—conclusions, NOT solutions. Evangelicals and other Christians—in fact anyone interested in religion in America—will find this a fascinating and remarkable book.

Endorsements & Reviews-

Evangelicals at an Impasse is unusually comprehensive and clear. It is readable, instructive, and suggestive. Johnston has challenged and enriched evangelical discussion and contemporary theological effort.”

—Thomas A. Langford, Dean, Duke University

Evangelicals at an Impasse deserves to be widely read, discussed and reflected upon by all who are concerned about contemporary issues that divide Christians. Johnston is especially to be commended for his fair presentation of differing views.”

—Donald Tinder, Christianity Today
