A High View of Scripture?: The Authority of the Bible and the Formation of the New Testament Canon
Allert, Craig†D.

Grand Rapids: Baker, 2007 pp. 203. $18.99

Series Information
Evangelical Ressourcement

Description: Allert asks how it is possible to have a high view of Scripture if it is detached from the realities of the origin and formation of the Bible. This volume has the potential of opening up a useful dialogue among evangelicals on the origin and nature of Scripture and its relation to contemporary theological issues. I commend this book to pastors, students, and biblical scholars who want a challenging discussion of these important issues.

Subjects: Methods, Theological Approaches, Biblical Theology
