In Scripture and the Authority of God former Bishop and New Testament scholar N. T. Wright delivers a new model for how to understand the place of scripture and God's authority in the midst of religious confusion. Wright gives new life to the old, tattered doctrine of the authority of scripture, delivering a fresh, helpful, and concise statement on how to read the Bible today, restoring scripture as a place to find God's voice.
In this revised and expanded edition of the previously titled book The Last Word, Wright provides two case studies that delve into what it means to keep Sabbath and how Christians can defend marital monogamy. These studies offer not only bold biblical insights but also showcase Wright's new model for how to interpret scripture and restore its role as the church's main resource for teaching and guidance. Removing the baggage that the last 100 years of controversy and confusion have placed on this doctrine, Wright renews our confidence in the Bible and shows how it can once again serve as the living Word of God for our lives.

Customer Reviews for Scripture and the Authority of God
NT Wright is rightly hailed as one of the world's best New Testament scholars. His book on interpretation lives up to his reputation.
One of the great things about this book is that one need not read it in its entirety to grasp the argument. Wright begins by tracing interpretation through Christian history and then suggests a way forward. Particularly helpful is his section on misconceptions and his "new" interpretative suggestions. Readers of all skill can approach Wright's argument here and have deep appreciation even amidst some small disagreements.
