In these essays, prominent scholars address issues such as recent scholarship on the doctrine of Scripture, the limits of harmonization, the impact of the Enlightenment on the doctrine of Scripture, and more. A long-celebrated resource with contributions from scholars such as Douglas J. Moo and Kevin Vanhoozer, Hermeneutics, Authority, and Canon will give you clarity on cherished doctrines that are, too often, little understood.

“The third factor that has helped to raise again the subject of Scripture is the crisis of authority that stamps so much of modern, Western Christianity—especially in academic circles. Children of the Enlightenment, like moths to a light we are drawn to the incandescence of the autonomy of reason. But having destroyed all the pretensions of external authority, we have discovered, somewhat aghast, that reason is corruptible, that one human mind does not often agree in great detail with another human mind, that reason by itself is a rather stumbling criterion of truth, beset as it is by a smorgasbord of values, theories, and predispositions shaped in remarkable independence of reason.” (Page 8)
