Many people look within themselves, mining their thoughts and feelings for “the voice of God.” And yet God has already spoken. The incarnate Word makes himself known in the written Word, and this communication keeps us personally connected to him. We need nothing else. Gene Veith makes this clear as he examines not only the sufficiency of God’s Word, but also the flawed thinking of those who try to add to or detract from it. This passionate, personal booklet is a call for all of us to return to God’s Word as our one and only authority in faith and practice.

    This is a good little book - easy to read in a single sitting if so desired - that examines the sufficiency of the written Word of God. It is a good starting point to what is a more involved topic - and I appreciate that the Author has included a good list of books for further reading (and many of them are ones I also would recommend). This book is quite Lutheran in its outlook - not that I have a problem with that. I do feel that some of the comments about Pentecostalism are a bit dated. Whilst I don’t disagree with the Author’s use of Inerrancy, I was disappointed that he didn’t examine its misuse. I would’ve also appreciated a better coverage of the human side of our Scriptures.
