Introducing the Edward Carnell Library
(Nine Titles Listed Inside)

In Television: Servant or Master?, Carnell develops a balanced
approach to this rambunctious new medium of communication. Among his
conclusions is the refreshing recognition that the rigid fundamentalist
stand against Hollywood moving pictures has suddenly been rendered
defunct. Arguing convincingly that all of life is mixture, that nothing natural or human is either wholly good or wholly bad, he stresses that television's future will depend on how human beings sort
out its peril and potential.

At a time when the wildly popular new medium of television was just
beginning to saturate the country, evangelicalism's leading
philosopher-theologian of the 1950s and 1960's gave Americans some badly needed biblical and scholarly perspective.

--Rudolph Nelson, author of
The Making and Unmaking of an Evangelical Mind: The Case of Edward Carnell

""Edward John Carnell was--in my estimation--the brightest and the best of the neo-evangelical leaders. He was a courageous thinker who was not afraid to think new thoughts in the service of biblical orthodoxy. The Carnell Library is a gift to today's evangelical movement.""

--Richard J. Mouw
President, Fuller Seminary

""[Carnell's] fertile mind and ready pen blazed fresh theological trails as he sought to defend and proclaim the Christian faith as a world and life view.""

--Dr. David Allan Hubbard
Former President of Fuller Theological Seminary

Edward John Carnell (1919-1967) was an ordained Baptist minister who served for three years as Associate Professor of Philosophy of Religion at Gordon Divinity School. He taught apologetics at Fuller Theological Seminary from 1948 to 1967 and served there as the second president from 1954 to 1959.
