Holy Scripture: A Dogmatic Sketch

Cambridge University Press (2003) | English | ISBN:0521538467 | 157 pages | PDF | 1.30 MB

May we speak, in the present age, of Holy Scripture? And what validation of that claim can be offered, robust enough to hold good for both religious practice and intellectual inquiry? John Webster argues that while any understanding of Scripture must subject it to proper textual and historical interrogation, it is necessary at the same time to acknowledge the special character of scriptural writing. He examines terms such as ‘revelation’, ‘sanctification’ and ‘inspiration’ in relation to Scripture and in doing so finds that there is a way to counter the tendency of modern culture to bifurcate the transcendent reality of God and the material texts of the Bible. This book is an exercise in Christian dogmatics, a loud reaffirmation of the triune God at the heart of a Scripture-based Christianity. But it is written with intellectual rigour by a theologian who understands the currents of modern secular thought and is able to work from them towards a constructive position on biblical authority. It will resonate with anyone who has wondered or worried about the grounds on which we may validly regard the Bible as God’s direct communication with humanity.
