A Biblical Destiny
by Jeffery L. Romine
We live in a day of advanced technology, but what lies behind it is applied knowledge. Knowledge is a sweeping term, serving as a common denominator undergirding science, philosophy, theology and the list goes on. It speaks to the condition of learnedness as opposed to merely opinion, or its absence, ignorance. Christianity is knowledge based too. Like pursuing a philosophic line of reasoning, this book engages the biblical trajectory that follows from the Tree of Knowledge. Drawing upon the great thinkers, topics such as the great debate over faith and reason, postmodernism, law in the confines of covenant, justice in the context of dominion, and the role of the Holy Spirit are addressed, distilling out key components related to knowledge, showing how the path forward leads into covenant-relationship.
Romine's impressive nonfiction debut is a comprehensive and lucid examination of the complicated role of knowledge--as both a category and a process--in the Christian faith structure.
The dichotomy at work here is elemental; the author deftly explains that formal reasoning has its limits...
But Romine intriguingly elaborates on the concept of external, objective truth...
A complex and detailed call for Christians to embrace the knowledge of their faith.
