Description

Upon the launch of his fourth book with Oxford University Press, Need to Know: Vocation as the Heart of Christian Epistemology, John Stackhouse offers a preview of how a Christian should think seriously about a serious subject. Stackhouse builds his epistemological argument upon the belief that since God calls humans to do particular things in this world, God is reliable to supply the necessary knowledge for human beings to do these things.
