Simplistic Presentations of Biblical Authority and Christian Origins in the Service of Anti-Catholic Dogma: A Response to Anders Gerdmar
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Theology, Department of Theology, Old and New Testament Exegesis, New Testament Exegesis.

Abstract [en]

This review article assesses Anders Gerdmar, Guds ord räcker: evangelisk tro kontra romersk-katolsk [God’s Word is sufficient: Evangelical faith against Roman Catholic (faith)] (Uppsala: Areopagos, 2016) and focuses on the use of arguments ostensibly based on biblical scholarship urging that Protestant evangelicals not convert to Roman Catholicism. The main issues concern the Bible in relation to tradition; alleged witnesses to an early New Testament canon; the “Protestant historiographic myth” of origins as a rhetorical weapon; and essentialist characterizations of what is biblical, evangelical, and Catholic. Much of what James Barr said to primarily British and North American audiences in Fundamentalism (1977) and Beyond Fundamentalism (1984) would seem to be forebodingly relevant even nowadays in some parts of Sweden.
