Product Description

From differences over which translation is best to disagreements about what the Scriptures say about women in ministry, homosexuality, and creation, the Bible continues to be at the center of debate for many Christians.

In this enlightening book Samuel Powell introduces a Christian doctrine of Scripture that sweeps away much of the controversy. By giving special attention to the authority, revelation, and inspiration of the Bible, Dr. Powell provides a concise but scholarly understanding of the Scriptures that is historically well grounded and theologically sound.

Written from a Wesleyan perspective, this book is an indispensable resource for pastors, teachers, and small-group leaders. Equipped with a bibliography for further study, it is an ideal teaching tool and a valuable reference for anyone wanting to know more about the nature and purpose of the Bible.

The result of reading this text should prepare church leaders, teachers, and members to read the word of God, the Bible, expecting scripture will reveal the true Word of God, Jesus Christ.’ -Dean G. Blevins, Ph.D, Director, Master of Arts in Christian Formation and Discipleship, Nazarene Theological Seminary’In a carefully crafted work on the doctrine of Scripture, Sam Powell invites readers to think about the Bible as a divine and human book, the Word of God and the word written by human beings in ancient cultures. This engaging book will no doubt become an important teaching tool and lively conversation starter in the days ahead.’ -Kenneth J. Collins, Ph.D, Professor of Historical Theology and Wesley Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary
