Contending for the Faith

Bob Jones University Press, 2000


Is separatist, militant Fundamentalism necessary, or is it outmoded? Should Fundamentalists continue to confront, or is it time to move toward common ground? For a new generation of Fundamentalists genuinely seeking to understand what the movement is, Fred Moritz offers a challenge: “If we wish to truly understand Fundamentalism, we must go to the Scriptures.” Despite changing times, the church has a clear biblical directive in the book of Jude. The only defense of the truth of the gospel is in earnestly contending for the faith.

The Logos edition of this volume from Bob Jones University is fully searchable and easily accessible. Scripture passages are linked directly to your preferred translation, and important theological concepts are linked to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and the wealth of resources in your digital library.
