Product Description

Ever since the Enlightenment, an unsettling series of questions has been raised concerning the accuracy and authority of Scripture. To deal with this ongoing debate, D. A. Carson has pulled together a worldwide team of 37 top-notch experts who tackle head-on a host of the most difficult historical, philosophical, theological, epistemological, and comparative religion questions.

Among the notable contributors are Henri Blocher, Craig Blomberg, Paul Helm, Robert Kolb, Anthony Lane, Douglas Moo, Andrew Naselli, Kevin Vanhoozer, Bruce Waltke, Charles Hill, James Beilby, John Woodridge. . . . Each surveys his topic from almost every conceivable angle before coming up with sensible, if tentative, solutions.

Carson himself, in conclusion, answers frequently asked questions about the nature of Scripture, cross-referencing these FAQs to the preceding chapters. Eclipsing all its predecessors, The Enduring Authority of the Christian Scriptures will long serve as the go-to reference on the subject and belongs on the most select bookshelf.

    5 Stars Out Of 5
    Getting the BIG Picture

    If you are a layman who is forever "in the Word" in terms of chapter and verse... it may be time to get the big picture.

    The history of interpretation, the methods of study, epistemological footings and perspective, sound lucid argumentation and explanation of controversies... its all here. Some of these chapters are the best theological writing you are likely to find. Comprehensive, comprehensible and fearless critique.

    Laymen, fear not. This volume is a bargain at half the price. Get the big picture intellectually of the Bible and let this book give you perspective on ALL the ways it is currently (and historically) received or rejected.

    Likely the most important book of its kind for this generation, this massive volume covers the doctrine of Scripture from every conceivable vantage point. Edited by the redoubtable D. A. Carson, this book maintains a consistently high level of scholarship. Though I did not read every page (I wanted to provide somewhat of a timely review), I read much and was impressed throughout.

    The volume begins with a spectacular introductory essay by Carson that was fascinating. He at once laid bare the lines of debate and an outline of the history. Starting a trend that carried through the book, he named names. He was never ugly, but he put people with positions and then evaluated positions in this successful romp through the issues.

    Next comes nine chapters on historical topics. There might be more information than you feel the need to know, but in any future historical questions you will likely find your answers here.

    The heart of the book was chapters 11-24 on biblical and theological topics. These articles were excellent even if certain parts were somewhat esoteric. Still, the great subjects were fully addressed. The next section on philosophical and epistemological topics carried the theological discussion forward. The section on comparative religion topics was much less interesting to me, but that is likely a matter of taste. The book ends with Daniel Doriani encouraging us to think holistically and then some FAQ by Carson.

    This book is a major publishing event. Pastors will find some that is helpful clarification, but some that is needless complication. We must remember, though, that the book is dedicated to scholarly concerns in addition to what is helpful to us. There were statements that I could not agree with in these pages, but this book is a presentation of the conservative position. To that end, it was just what was needed in our complicated days.

    I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
