The object of this study is to explore the philosophical basis of religious authority. The intent is to set forth an apology for the pre-eminence of the Christian faith according to the popularly-designated "evangelical" interpretation. There is recognized in the oft-repeated usage of the term "evangelical" within ecclesiastical circles a certain ambiguity of understanding. The purpose of its employment here is to establish a working basis with the intention that particular distinctions will become apparent in the text of the study.
