Product Description

Is the Bible infallible as some churches claim? Is it a historical document or a piece of literature, as scholars suggest?

Engaging Biblical Authority offers a brief introduction to the question of biblical authority, using essays written by sixteen scholars who use the Bible as the word of God in their own religious tradition and scholarship.

William Brown introduces the basic issues of biblical authority, and each following scholar presents a different, but sympathetic, view from his or her own perspective. Included are traditional Reformed, Lutheran, Wesleyan, Catholic, Jewish, and Orthodox views; recent conservative and evangelical positions; and critical African American, Asian American, Hispanic, feminist, and womanist perspectives.

    Some of the essays contained in this book are well written and interesting. There are some well regarded scholars included: Frank Matera, Terence Fretheim, and Luke Timothy Johnson. There is a spectrum of writers from the Protestant, Catholic and Jewish traditions. But contrary to the blurb, it is hard to discern any "modern conservative and evangelical" contributions in the book. There is nothing in here by respected evangelical scholars such as D.A Carson, Richard Longenecker, Craig Blomberg, Andreas Kostenberger, etc.

    At best, a few writers might be considered centrist or slightly traditionalist in their perspectives. But in my reading, most of the writers lean heavily to the left side of the religious spectrum.

    This book reflects a liberal's view of "diversity," with views ranging from the middle of the road to the far Left. I feel I was misled in ordering this book.
