Understanding what the Bible teaches about itself is an issue of central importance. However, correct theologies of the Bible can be expressed in non-biblical categories; and it would be foolish to believe of the Bible what it does not claim for itself, whether implicitly or explicitly.
Peter Adam's conviction is that there is a coherent 'biblical theology of the Bible'. In this wide-ranging volume, he searches the Scriptures to find their answer to the question of their identity and use, and expounds the following summary phrase:
* Receiving God's words
* Written for his people
* By his Spirit
* About his Son
This fresh, energetic presentation is a valuable complement to the author's previous works on the function and application of Scripture in Christian life and ministry.
