Excellent! Well thought through, and a breath of freah air! Why aren't their more people like this guy and why are they silent?

Interesting...though in some ways I think I understand his point. (I have not read the book.) There are a lot of good, Bible-believing evangelical Christians who disagree about a lot of things. Dunk or sprinkle? Speak in tongues? A word from the Lord? They each claim to be absolutely right, and they may be. I may still disagree. I often wish we could just be a bit more generous with each other...

"There are a lot of good Bible-believing evangelicals who disagree"

That is true.

They all claim to be absolutely right.

That is true as well. In fact everyone making a claim believes to be right (even postmodernist, despite all their protestation).

I think that the fatal mistake of postmodernists is concluding that if there are different points of view no one can be correct. This simply does not follow.

Of course, I could be mistaken about this but that would not mean that Truth does not exist.
