Cloth. Like New. Will the life-giving message of the Gospel be lost in endless debates and harangues over biblical authority? Dr. J. I. Packer believes that this is a grave and persent danger --unless Christians can move beyond the battle for the Bible and reaffirm the power of God's Word. But how to do this? The key is in recovering an authentic approach to biblical study, interpretation, and understanding. In a clear & thoughtful way Dr. Packer shows how this can be done. First we must return to the kin d of thorough & systematic approach in Bible reading and exposition --including both the old & New Testaments --which has always characterized public worship at its best. Next we must examine our theological tradition in light of Scripture --rather than examining the Bible in light of Scripture --rather than examing the Bible in light of our traditions. Too often we have let traditions take precedence, at the expense of truly biblical teaching.
