In spite of our culture’s current skepticism about knowledge, people nevertheless are desperate to know what’s real and true. How is this possible? How can we find a model of knowing that doesn’t artificially divide “faith” and “knowledge”? How can we avoid the postmodern trap of confusing power for knowledge?
In order to know things, we have to give up the Enlightenment error of connecting knowledge to provability; in other words, there are many things we know not by proving them but by living in them. In the Bible, knowing is a relational act, not a math problem to be solved. And when we began to commit to knowledge as a give-and-take between us and those around us, we began to trust in the God of knowledge who reveals himself to us and gives us true, lived-in knowledge.
