For all of the Bible's popularity, confusion reigns about what the Bible is, its relationship to God and to its human authors and readers, and its proper use. Living and Active answers these fundamental questions by looking anew at Scripture from the perspective of Christian doctrine.Rather than treating the Bible as a sourcebook for theology, Telford Work uses systematic theology to build a compelling new doctrine of Scripture that allows us to see the Bible at work accomplishing God's purposes in the world. Throughout the book, Work incorporates insights from the Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Calvinist, Anabaptist, and evangelical traditions. He also interacts with patristic theology, historical-critical methods of interpretation, and postmodern thought. As a result, Living and Active is the most relevant and ecumenical statement of Scripture now available.
Telford Work is assistant professor of religious studies at Westmont College, Santa Barbara, California.
An ecumenical volume extraordinaire! Work incorporates insights from Orthodox, Catholic, Lutheran, Calvinist, Anabaptist, and evangelical traditions, seeing Scripture not as a sourcebook for theology, but as a living force for accomplishing God's intended purposes in the world.
