Human desire for God is all too often a dead-end. We cry out, but hear only the echo of our own voices. Frustrated at not finding God, we give up believing. We can find no way to climb up to God. Our only hope lies in movement from the other direction--God coming down to us. The Bible tells the story of God coming to us for our salvation. It speaks of the God who reveals himself to his people in the Old Testament and by the coming of Jesus Christ in the New. The story spans more than two thousand years. The Bible gives us the possibility to know God and what he did for us. In Taking the Bible at its Word, Paul Wells shows that the Bible is where God speaks and what that means for us. How does the Bible function as a book? In what way does God speak to us in the Bible through Jesus Christ? What gives this divinely-inspired--yet human--book unique authority and truthfulness? Why is Scripture God's final word? In this book, Wells lets the Bible speak for itself and answer those questions. We must listen to it and learn from it on its own terms, not ours.
Born in Sarnia, Paul Wells has worked for the Montreal Gazette, and as a columnist for the "National Post," He is now "Maclean's" chief Ottawa correspondent, and a frequent panelist and speaker. ý"From the Hardcover edition."
