Bearing True Witness

Full Product Description

If proclaiming the gospel is at root a matter of telling the truth about the way things are, then Christian witnesses are paradigmatic truth-tellers. In Bearing True Witness Craig Hovey engages modern theology, philosophy, and ethics including the work of Nietzsche, Foucault, and MacIntyre to consider how Christians see, recognize, embrace, and faithfully bear witness to the truth of Jesus Christ.
Hovey argues that when the church faithfully declares to the world that salvation is in Christ, that the world belongs to him, and that his works are good, it is essentially an ethical action. Moreover, he says, when Christians have the courage to speak honestly about the reality of God and divine truth, their witness becomes a force capable of challenging and overcoming worldly injustices and abuses of power.

Bearing True Witness by Craig Hovey was published by Eerdmans Publishing Company in September 2011. The ISBN for Bearing True Witness is 9780802865816.
