The Marks of Scripture: Rethinking the Nature of the Bible
Castelo, Daniel and Robert W. Wall

Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2019 pp. xiii + 178. $21.99

Description: This volume written by a theologian and a biblical scholar offers a fresh model for understanding Scripture as God's Word. The authors work out the four Nicene marks of the church--one, holy, catholic, and apostolic--as marks of Scripture, offering a new way of thinking about the Bible that bridges theology and interpretation. Their ecclesial analogy invites us to think of Scripture in similar terms to how we think of the church, countering the incarnational model propagated by Peter Enns and others.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, New Testament, Literature, Methods, Literary Approaches, Hermeneutics, Reception History
