Description

Christianity has come under sustained attack in the twentieth century, not only from those who are obvious unbelievers, but from teachers in theological seminaries and churches as well.  One argument frequently used to undermine Christianity is the alleged inadequacy of human language to express divine truth.  Statements about God, so we are told, are mythological, analogical, or allegorical; they are not - they cannot be-literally true.  


But if words are inadequate, if human words cannot express the divine Word, then the Bible cannot be a revelation from God.  The whole of Christianity rests upon the adequacy of words, for the revelation is conveyed by means of words.  When God spoke to Moses and the prophets, when he guided the pens of Peter and Paul, he used words-human words.  In Language and Theology, Gordon Clark presents a masterful and devastating analysis of those secular and religious thinkers who deny that human words can express divine truth.

This is an issue that is of vital importance to all, for all churches and seminaries have been influenced by the anti-Christian notion that human words cannot teach divine truth.
