Description

Many Christians today feel confused and intimidated by the myriad claims of modern scholars who proffer 'real' histories that are often at odds with Biblical history. DR. Iain Provan outlines a basic history of Biblical scholarship, examining the epistemological suppositions of contemporary historians, and how it is we 'know' certain things are true and that others are not.
