5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent explanation of the difference between Christianity and religious humanism, 19 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Fundamentalism and the Word of God (Paperback)
Packer sets out Christianity as an authoritatively revealed religion, and thus sets it in opposition to those disfigured versions of the faith which lack the essential recognition of the divine inspiration and authority of the Christian Bible. He ably defends the view that belief in the ultimate inerrancy of Scripture is no warrant for anti-intellectualism and obscurantism, whilst also making clear that liberal, humanistic conceptions of the Christian faith in which spiritual truth is relativised to human subjective opinion differs absolutely from true Christianity as Christ and the Bible declare it. He thereby rescues 'fundamentalism' from its anti-intellectual reactions to theological liberalism, whilst thoroughly exposing the latter as a total departure from authentic Christianity into various forms of sub-Christian relativism dressed up in Christian language.
