In a world faced with every kind of religious pluralism, it is as imperative today as it ever has been for the Bible to remain the absolute standard by which all things are judged. The subject of biblical authority may be the most critical and sensitive issue facing the evangelical Christian world today. The rippling effect of this discussion has touched every major theology and philosophical issue under consideration.
Jimmy Draper, along with Kenneth Keathley, deals with this issue in a clear and concise way. They examine modern critical thought and historic positions of the church as well as new methods of interpreting the Bible, such as reader response criticism and postmodern hermeneutics. Biblical Authority will strengthen your faith in the Word of God.
