Today there is an increasing awareness and availability of the sacred writings of the world's religions. This raises important questions about the Christian Scriptures. What is distinctive about these writings? What role do they play in the Christian story? What makes these particular texts "holy" The modern "battle for the Bible" with its narrow focus on proving (or disproving) biblical inerrancy, has made it difficult to provide sufficient answers. This work of constructive theology rethinks the concepts, categories, and assumptions that have dominated the modern approach to the Bible by returning to the biblical narrative and its focus on the cross. It identifies the Scriptures as the written form of the living and active Word of God, which was spoken by the prophets and apostles and became human in the person of Jesus Christ. This conception of the Bible provides Christians in this postmodern world with a solid ground from which to address pressing questions about canon, authority, and interpretation of their Scriptures.

About the Author:

Peter H. Nafzger (Ph.D.) is an assistant professor at Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. He teaches homiletics and systematic theology, focusing on the Word of God, in its written, spoken, and personal forms.

Review:

"The strengths of this volume are many... For seminarians, pastors, and teachers who are seeking a treatment that combines a reverence for the written Word with an attention to the honest questions posed by both discerning parishioners and contemporary scholarship, this volume is a splendid place to begin." - Lutheran Quarterly
