Quote: Liberal Professor Thomas Boslooper on the Claim that "the Virgin Birth of Christ was Derived from Pagan Myths"

"The literature...which produced this conclusion and which has become the authority for contemporary scholars who wish to perpetrate the notion that the virgin birth in the New Testament has a non-Christian source, is characterized by brief word, phrase, and sentence quotations that have been lifted out of context or incorrectly translated and used to support preconceived theories. Sweeping generalizations based on questionable evidence have become dogmatic conclusions that cannot be substantiated on the basis of careful investigation."1

Courage and Godspeed,

1. As quoted by Lee Strobel in The Case for Christianity, p. 95.  It is worth noting that Boslooper wrote a book entitled The Virgin Birth.
