Overview

For the Church, the Bible is an authority that talks about morality; but the (western) culture accepts neither authority nor morality . . . The Church must challenge the modem world to enter the world of the Bible, and must place the culture of modernism in the spotlight of the Bible (Summau Findings Report, Canterbury 1993). What does the Bible say about the authority of scripture? What links the Holy Spirit and the Holy Bible? How does scripture inform the witness of the exploding Church in Tanzania and of a struggling congregation in a religiously plural inner city in the UK? Can a Toronto church use the Bible to address the issue of homosexuality? How does a bishop use scripture to reform the structure of his diocese in South Africa or to address national injustice in Kenya? And is there a particular Anglican view of scripture to contribute to the ecumenical debate? In June 1995, the Evangelical Fellowship in the Communion held its first international consultation in its thirty-two year history "to commend and strengthen biblical authority in the life of the church." This book captures the findings of the consultation, Bible studies on biblical authority and case studies on the use of scripture in mission. The international team of contributors comprises of John Stott (UK), Vinay Samuel (India), Michael Nazir-Ali (Pakistan), Mdimi Mhogolo (Tanzania), Margaret Rodgers (Australia), Peter Moore (Canada), Philip Le Feuvre (South Africa) and Alfredo Cooper (Chile), along with Graham Kings, Cyril Okorocha, Elaine Storkey, Jesudasan Jeyaraj, Chris Wright, Ida Glaser and Paddy Benson.
