Anything by N.T.Wright is a good read in my opinion. In this readable book Wright looks at the notion of "authority" and what it means for understanding scripture. Generally Wright in this book challenges both literalist reading of scripture and the post-modernist rejection of a meta-narrative. The Bible is authoritative because it has Christ's authority in interpreting it. It is not the Bible which gives authority to Christ, but Christ who gives authority to the Bible.
