Histories and Fallacies
Problems Faced in the Writing of History—New Book by Rev. Dr. Carl Trueman
Seeking to raise the bar for all historians, Histories and Fallacies addresses several problems in the historical disciplines: objectivity, evidence and meaning, anachronism, idealism, and causality and context. In each chapter author Dr. Carl R. Trueman, professor of Church History and Historical Theology, gives an account of the problem, examines one or more classic examples of it, and suggests either a solution or an approach that will bear fruit.

Publisher Review: In this solid evangelical commentary on John's Gospel, a respected Scripture expositor makes clear the flow of the text, engages a small but representative part of the massive secondary literature on John, shows how the Fourth Gospel contributes to biblical and systematic theology, and offers a consistent exposition of John as a evangelistic Gospel. The comprehensive introduction treats such matters as the authenticity, authorship, purpose, and structure of the Gospel.
"Carson has made the text of John come alive with historical, linguistic, and theological insight that is readily accessible both to the theologian and the aware layperson . . . Fresh, colorful, readable, and up to date.
