In this volume, thirty-seven celebrated evangelical scholars present a thorough study of biblical authority and a full range of issues connected to it.
D.A. Carson serves as editor for this volume. He has assigned the topics based upon a recognition that Scripture and its authority are now being both challenged and defended with renewed vigor. After an introduction by Carson to the many facets of the current discussion, contributors present robust essays on relevant historical, biblical, theological, philosophical, epistemological, and comparative-religion topics. Carson concludes by answering a number of frequently asked questions about the nature of Scripture, cross-referencing these queries to info in preceding chapters.
