Westminster John Knox Press The Presbyterian Source: Bible Words That Shape a Faith

What is central to the Presbyterian identity? The Bible and its reading through the church provide some specific teachings that undergird and nourish the church: the incarnation of Jesus Christ, the promise that God's Spirit will be with those who believe, the promise of eternal life, human responsibility for the world, and the need to proclaim the gospel. Using twelve biblical passages, Louis B. Weeks helps adult study groups, Bible study groups, and individuals study the Bible as they reflect on who they are as Presbyterians. He explores the Presbyterian tradition, which has used the Bible as a guide, remaining faithful to both the Old and New Testaments. This book is "on target" in providing "threshold knowledge of biblical influences on Reformed theology." It is "a worthy companion" to Weeks' To Be a Presbyterian--Virgil Cruz, Professor of New Testament, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
