345. I think I'm gonna love this book…

In the preface to his book, The Next Reformation, Carl Raschke writes:

sola fide and sola scriptura – “by faith alone” and “by Scripture alone.” The postmodernist turn in thought is an opportunity for Christian thinkers to claim and seize these slogans at this revolutionary moment in history. It allows us finally to wrest thought away from all those surly habits of reasoning that Francis Schaeffer, in his passionate but fruitless diatribes, contended were eroding the Christian worldview. It is time for Christian intellectuals to regain the offensive after more than three hundred years of cravenly throwing incense before the statue of the modernist intellectual Caesar. It is time to say confidently, “Back to the Bible, back to the Mount of Olives, back to Sinai!”
