Description

Dr. Montgomery contends that no one can "sit in a house by the side of the road and watch the world go by." Everyone is caught up in the flux of human life, and there is no naturalistic resting resting place within human history from which one can gain a universal, absolute perspective on man's life. Christianity is the only answer to this basic human predicament, for it claims, and by the resurrection backs up its claim, that there is a God and that He entered human history and revealed its essential nature.
