(p.38) Chapter 1 Knowledge
Biblical Truths

Dale B. Martin

Yale University Press

Before getting to the construction of actual Christian theology, issues of epistemology must be addressed. How do we know what we know? Can Christian doctrine and scripture provide guidance for a faithful construction of human knowledge? Chapter 1 addresses several issues in the philosophy of knowledge and demonstrates that the New Testament can indeed furnish raw materials for postmodern epistemology. But it also insists that no knowledge can be had for any of us apart from the precarious activities of human interpretation.
