What People are Saying About This

J. I. Packer

“This wide-ranging whirlwind-tour account of Scripture channeling God’s authority, with its tweaking of distortions back into shape and its first-class approach to Bible study, is masterly throughout.”

Brian McLaren

“N. T. Wright opens for us a path beyond of the paralyzing polarization of “liberal” and “conservative.”

Timothy George

“[P]robing, provocative, insightful…This is a book of uncommon wisdom for all who read and love the Bible.”

Ben Witherington

“In a fashion that is both old fashioned and new fangled at the same time Bishop Wright takes us through a sane and helpful study of what it means to treat the Bible as the authoritative Word of God. Highly Recommended!”

John R. Franke

“Written by one of the leading Christian thinkers in the world today, this book is a refreshing and accessible resource concerning the perennial question of biblical authority that moves the discussion beyond the liberal-conservative impasse of our times. Highly Recommended.”

This author asks the questions I ask and suggests thoughtful answers which are based on history, philosophy and scripture. A learned scholar, he speaks from the vantage point of serious scholarship and commitment. The book is written in a manner that is both understandable and inspirational to the reader. I am especially impressed with rhe articulation of the Christian hope which is an anticipation of the time when God's "kingdom comes and His will is done on earth as it is in heaven". "Scripture and the Authority of God" makes clear that the Bible is much more than a compilation of rules for living. He provides the reader with a deeper understanding of what scripture is and suggests ways it ought to be taught and learned individually and within the context of the church.
