Understanding what the Bible teaches about itself is an issue of central importance. However, correct theologies of the Bible can be expressed in non-biblical categories; and it would be foolish to believe of the Bible what it does not claim for itself, whether implicitly or explicitly.Peter Adam's conviction is that there is a coherent 'biblical theology of the Bible'. In this wide-ranging volume, he searches the Scriptures to find their answer to the question of their identity and use, and expounds the following summary phrase: * Receiving God's words * Written for his people * By his Spirit * About his SonPart One gives an overview of the four elements of this summary statement. Parts Two to Five offer studies of selected Old Testament and New Testament texts that cover these foundations. Part Six shows that Jesus authenticated both Testaments, and that the four foundations are present in his teaching.This fresh, energetic presentation is a valuable complement to the author's previous works on the function and application of Scripture in Christian life and ministry.-Publisher.
