In this provocative book, N.T. Wright approaches the debate of the authority of Scripture from a different angle. It is, after all, God himself who possesses all authority and that authority is primarily about his sovereign, saving purposes being accomplished through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. What does it mean for the Bible to be a channel for that powerful authority? This question brings up new angles on many other issues: the relation of Scripture, tradition and reason; the place of experience; the many-sided problems of the use and abuse of the Bible in relation to personal and public life. N.T. Wright’s contribution to this intense debate will bring fresh clarity to many puzzling questions.
