Apologetics and Biblical Interpretation According to Carl F. H. Henry
Author: Jonathan A. Wood
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
The Bible makes remarkable claims about people and events in world history. Creation, Adam and Eve, Israel’s escape from Egypt, the rise and fall of Israel’s kingdom, the birth of the Messiah, Jesus Christ’s life, death, and resurrection, the growth of the church—all points of interest by scholars for the historical veracity of the Scriptures. Yet, the Bible does not appear to present the acts of God in history for the purpose of vindicating historical accuracy of the text. The Bible is a story that reveals the living God through inspired writings that communicate the meaning of historical events. In light of the Bible as the revelation of God, and the high stakes of historical veracity for the claims of the Bible, how should Christians approach the interpretation of the Scriptures in a faithful way? Carl F. H. Henry offers guidance as a foremost theologian regarding God, revelation, and the Scriptures. In Did it Really Happen? Jonathan Wood engages the thought of Carl Henry in dialogue with the major alternatives to revelation, history, and the biblical text. The value of Carl Henry’s approach is shown to provide a path forward for affirming the historicity of the Bible while interpreting the text well.

I wanted to write my story and I wanted to prove to myself that God in me as my effective source would guide me to accomplish this desire of my heart within the year if I worked to bring it about. Several principles have been at work in me from the time I was very young that have kept me on the path of learning. The first being that I always wanted to know why about everything. The second is that I started hearing the voices through books. The third , I believe in magic and the value of Myth and Enchantment The most important guidance was from my Mother figures.
In this boldest book since Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism, Bishop John Shelby Spong offers a compelling view of the Gospels as thoroughly Jewish tests.Spong powerfully argues that many of the key Gospel accounts of events in the life of Jesus—from the stories of his birth to his physical resurrection—are not literally true. He offers convincing evidence that the Gospels are a collection of Jewish midrashic stories written to convey the significance of Jesus. This remarkable discovery brings us closer to how Jesus was really understood in his day and should be in ours.
This book presents the full content of the third and final debate between philosopher Antony Flew--who was, until 2004, one of the world's most prominent atheists--and Christian philosopher Gary Habermas. Included as well are transcripts of the Q & A session with the audience afterward, a 2004 conversation between Habermas and Flew shortly after Flew's much-publicized change of position to theism, as well as editor David Baggett's assessment and analysis of the full history of Habermas and Flew's interactions.
In Cry of Wonder, Gerard W. Hughes, author of God of Surprises, encourages readers to explore their own human experience, the unique doorway opening each of us out into the mystery of our present existence. In our time, such attention to mystery is considered counter-cultural and subversive of law and order. The truth of this observation becomes very clear to us if we give attention to our own felt reactions to the events of our lives. The purpose of this book is to focus our attention on this inner conflict, because it can reveal to us a vision of the transformation into which we are all now being invited in all that we are experiencing in every moment of our existence.
It’s been five years since Andy came face to face with a shocking experience that forever changed his life. It all started with the mysterious disappearance of Carmelita Mendosa, a young woman in the small town of Bullsnort, New Mexico. As a rookie reporter, Andy found the case curious and couldn’t help but look into it. In June of 1980, Andy went to Bullsnort, assigned to investigate Carmelita’s disappearance. Everyone thought the worst but hoped for the best. Then, Andy saw something: a figure seemingly made of sand. To the Native American people, this was a Sand God, also known as a “Dust Devil.” Andy’s “devil” wasn’t what it appeared to be, though, and this sighting led him into many strange experiences that left him questioning his sanity. What had become of Carmelita, and what had drawn Andy to her case in the first place? Secrets are revealed, but suffice to say, Andy is never the same after that trip to the mountains.
