A Lively and Enlightening Debate on Biblical Scholarship...

has been conducted at Dr. Phil Blosser's "Musings of a Pertinacious Papist". I'm with the papist who argues with regard to a certain type of historical-critical analysis, 'Here's the deal. This is the tradition of biblical scholars who approach the text in the following manner: "Look here," they say, "we want to be SCIENTIFIC about this. And we KNOW that miracles don't occur, so how can we make sense of these biblical texts on that assumption?"' and concludes, 'I simply find that I do not trust these men as biblical critics. Secondly, I cannot see how any friend of the Faith can make common cause with these men.'
