Studies in Scripture and Its Authority

Format: Digital
, 1978
ISBN: 9780802817075


In a day when the authority of Scripture has been questioned by many both outside and inside the church, these essays are presented by Herman Ridderbos to help concerned and interested students and laypeople to understand some of the issues involved. He discusses in a candid and lucid style the much-disputed topics of the doctrine of Scripture, the person of Christ, the Kingdom of God, and the last things. Throughout these essays Ridderbos is mindful of the authority which the Bible must bear within the Christian context, while at the same time he recognizes the contributions of a scientific study of Scripture.

As an active churchman, Ridderbos is aware that these issues can be unsettling and disturbing to the church. His aim in these essays is to develop a course of moderation which enable traditional theology to be made relevant to the topics of debate in the church today.
