For all of the Bible's popularity, confusion reigns about what the Bible is, its relationship to God and to its human authors and readers, and its proper use. Living and Active answers these fundamental questions by looking anew at Scripture from the perspective of Christian doctrine.

Rather than treating the Bible as a sourcebook for theology, Telford Work uses systematic theology to build a compelling new doctrine of Scripture that allows us to see the Bible at work accomplishing God's purposes in the world. Throughout the book, Work incorporates insights from the Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Calvinist, Anabaptist, and evangelical traditions. He also interacts with patristic theology, historical-critical methods of interpretation, and postmodern thought. As a result, Living and Active is the most relevant and ecumenical statement of Scripture now available.

Looking at theology through the lens of a postmodern culture, this volume is an essential and highly significant work. All Scripture passages are linked to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference.

  • Foreword by Richard B. Hays
  • Includes bibliographical references and an index
Telford Work (Westmont College), in this version of his dissertation done under Geoffrey Wainwright at Duke University, has offered a provocative and insightful account of the place of Scripture in the life of God and the Christian church. The introduction to the book will resonate with anyone who has taught introductory Bible courses and been dissatisfied with the overwhelming skepticism the experience seems to engender in students.
