This book is offered as a constructive re-statement of evangelical principles in the light of the current 'Fundamentalism controversy.' Its aim is to fix the right approach to the Bible, to the intellectual tasks of faith, and to the present debate. The book asks, "What is fundamentalism, and how does it view authority, scripture, faith, reason, and liberalism?"

Packer's work is a masterful summary of the intellectual coherence of the doctrines of the inerrancy and infallibility of Scripture. The book is now slightly dated in its references to specific works by non-Evangelicals which are now long-forgotten. Nevertheless, it remains an incisive account of the ultimate futility of fallen human reason as a source of authority for the Church, and an inspiring defense of Holy Scripture as the only utterly trustworthy guide for mankind.
