Unfortunately, this well written book contains a low view of the reliability of Scripture, the closed nature of the Christian Cannon, a non supernatural view of revelation, and an Neo-Orthodox approach to the Bible His models place the reader above Scripture rather than under Scripture.

It was a fine book in my Doctor of Ministry Course on Biblical Interpretation alongside Osborne's evangelical Hermeneutical Spiral for the sake of objective scholarship, however, I can't recommended by itself.

I'm biased, but I love John's work. Here he tackles the problem of scripture and challenges evangelicals to take scripture seriously, and to move past the fundamentalist/liberal paradigm. His section on inerrancy is sardonic and reflects a personality that is patient but not too patient!

Helpful, passionate, and necessary for all who are interested in scripture and how to interpret and understand her.
