Although the Churches of Christ (a cappella) have developed a distinct culture of attention to epistemological issues, little has been written about the epistemic framework that animates responses to these issues. The tradition’s significant emphasis on apologetics, debate, knowledge of absolute truth, and highly developed exegetical philosophies are tightly connected to the tradition’s religious epistemology. In order to understand this religious epistemology, this paper closely analyzes and critiques the epistemology of Thomas B. Warren, a prominent philosopher within the tradition.
