Item description for And God Spoke: The Authority of the Bible for the Church Today by Christopher Bryan...

His reflections on some of the ways we might answer these questions in the church today became the twelve short chapters of this book. Here scripture scholar and Anglican priest Christopher Bryan looks at the nature of the Bible s authority and inspiration and how the Bible can inform our decision-making today. He explores common questions about scripture, such as: What do we mean when we say that the scriptures are revelatory, that they are inspired, that they are the Word of God? How do we define the Bible s authority for the past and the future? What does a church that takes the Bible s authority seriously actually look like? How does it read, study, and pray with the Bible? And God Spoke offers essential guidelines for everyone who wonders about the authority of the Bible, and who wants to read it with attentiveness and understanding."

Reviews - What do customers think about And God Spoke: The Authority of the Bible for the Church Today?

And the scholar spoke  Sep 5, 2002
Christopher Bryan's modest, probing reflection on how to read Scripture was a fun read -- that sounds flippant, but I found his prose style entirely accessible and his witness welcome. The book doesn't go into a lot of depth; it's aimed at a general Christian reader. But his words lend assurance to those of us who search Scripture for truth and for a guide to our faith journey -- a journey that tries to navigate between the contortions of literal readings and the iconoclasm of liberal theology. He is especially cogent when he proposes how the Lambeth Conference should have approached searching for meaning in Scripture -- a love-inspired, serious approach other denominations grappling with issues of the day could learn from. I look forward to reading more of his work.
A profound and highly recommended theological wake-up call  Jul 8, 2002
And God Spoke: The Authority Of The Bible For The Church Today by Christopher Bryan (C. K. Benedict Professor of New Testament at the School of Theology, University of the South) is a serious, yet highly accessible study of how the Bible is to be interpreted in today's modern world. Viewing the Bible as revelation, canon, authoritative and the Word of God, and applying its studied wisdom to making tough choices, And God Spoke is a profound and highly recommended theological wake-up call vividly summoning the reader's attention to the textual core of Christian holy belief.
