Truth and Culture

Hart, Jeffrey
September 1977
National Review;9/2/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 34, p992
This article reports that Western culture can no longer hear historical evidence for Christianity. Both reason and history are now saying things which the American culture cannot hear. Christianity is a religion of events. Its faith is based upon historical events. Scholarship has stated that one has little or no reliable historical knowledge about Jesus Christ. However, more recently a powerful counter-movement has taken place. In his recent book "Redating the New Testament," biblical scholar John A.T. Robinson argues strongly for a much earlier date of composition for the key books related to Christianity than had been supposed earlier.
