Reexamining Perspicuity

This question is one of the biggest challenges to evangelical Christianity today. Maybe Roman Catholicism is right and we need a Magisterium. Maybe postmodernism is right and there’s no meaning in the text. Maybe the skeptic is right to dismiss our carefully reasoned explanation of Scripture, because, after all, “That’s just your interpretation.” The objection can be more sophisticated, or it can be quite lazy. But the argument seems crushing . . . until you really think about.
