Product Description

Review

''This wide-ranging whirlwind-tour account of Scripture channelling God's authority, with its tweaking of distortions back into shape and its first-class approach to Bible study, is masterly throughout.'' --J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver

''Here is Wright at his best - probing, provocative, insightful, ever reframing old questions and old debates, always inviting a fresh encounter with holy scripture as a living, dynamic reality. This is a book of uncommon wisdom for all who read and love the Bible.'' --Timothy George, Professor of Divinity, History and Doctrine, Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama

''With his usual clarity of thought and mastery of expression, Dr Wright takes his readers on one of the most refreshing and insightful tours of what the Bible presents as the relationship between its authority and God's authority and how that works itself out in the life of the Church.'' --Evangelicals Now

Written by one of the leading Christian thinkers in the world today, this book is a refreshing and accessible resource concerning the perennial question of biblical authority that moves the discussion beyond the liberal conservative impasse of our times. Highly recommended. --John R. Franke, formerly Professor of Missional Theology Biblical Seminary, Hatfield, Pennsylvania

Here is Wright at his best probing, provocative, insightful, ever reframing old questions and old debates, always inviting a fresh encounter with holy scripture as a living, dynamic reality. This is a book of uncommon wisdom for all who read and love the Bible. --Timothy George, Professor of Divinity, History and Doctrine Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

12 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Kevin Hargaden on 5 Feb 2007
Format: Paperback
Wright has written at great length about his views on the authority of Scripture, especially in NTPG. You get the impression that when he dedicates the book to Stephen Sykes and Robin Eames, the chairs of two boards Wright sits on, it is more than just a polite nod in their direction. This book seems to be a rapid response to a particular set of issues facing him in his ministry.

As such, it is a brilliant little book. In 100 pages it is never going to resolve the labyrinthine issues that face anyone asking the question "How can the Bible be authoritative" but Wright posts up a few signs in the right direction.

Superb illustrations and turns of phrase abound leaving you very clear as to what the author intends as he steps into a morass of contested terms. It is a superb little book to get one thinking anew on this crucial topic. Accessible to any interested reader. I cannot lay any major faults at its door.

I endorse the quote on the front cover, 'the best book of its kind available.' For a lay person like myself, Tom Wright gives clear and valuable insight into how to approach the reading of Scripture. There is a very useful section on the misreading of Scripture. The book highlights the importance of Scripture and the need for teachers and preachers to open the Bible to people in the power of the Spirit.

Deals with the selected topics in a clear and accessible way. Not for the fainthearted. It's worth reading at a slow pace and reflecting on what you are reading. Worth a second read.

Tom Wright never fails to inform and to inspire the reader towards new heights of knowledge and understanding. A first class addition to the Tom Wright canon from which all can benefit.
