In this provocative book, N.T. Wright approaches the debate of the authority of Scripture from a different angle. It is, after all, God himself who possesses all authority and that authority is primarily about his sovereign, saving purposes being accomplished through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. What does it mean for the Bible to be a channel for that powerful authority?

This question brings up new angles on many other issues: the relation of Scripture, tradition and reason; the place of experience; the many-sided problems of the use and abuse of the Bible in relation to personal and public life.

In Scripture and the Authority of God, Tom Wright argues that God is the ultimate source of all authority, and that God's authority is not primarily about providing the right answers to disputed questions, but about God's sovereign, saving purposes being declared and accomplished through Jesus and the Spirit. This revised and expanded edition includes two helpful case studies, looking at what it means to keep Sabbath and at how Christians can defend martial monogamy. These studies not only offer bold biblical insights but also demonstrate the indispensable role of scripture as the primary resource for teaching and guidance in the Christian life.
