Can We Know the Truth? (The Gospel Coalition Booklets) [eBook]
In today’s postmodern world truth is increasingly difficult to define and defend. The quintessential questions we find ourselves asking are, “Is there such a thing as truth?” And, if so, “How are we to define what truth is?” The Bible is very clear: all truth comes from God, and he has made it known to us.
In this Gospel Coalition booklet, Richard D. Phillips answers the question, “Can we know the truth?” He points us to the Bible as the revelation of God’s character and his design for our lives. Refuting postmodern objections, Phillips explains the role of truth in the Christian life and demonstrates truth put into practice. This is a great booklet to distribute to those asking if we can know anything with absolute certainty.
Can We Know the Truth? offers a thoughtful explanation for point 2 of the Gospel Coalition’s confessional statement. The Gospel Coalition is an evangelical renewal movement dedicated to a scripture-based reformation of ministry practices.
RICHARD D. PHILLIPS (MDiv, Westminster Theological Seminary) is the senior minister of Second Presbyterian Church in Greenville, SC. He serves on the board of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals and is the author of several books, including Jesus the Evangelist and What’s So Great about the Doctrines of Grace?
