Item description for Holy Scripture: Revelation, Inspiration & Interpretation (Christian Foundations) by Donald G. Bloesch...

Overview
In Holy Scripture, Donald G. Bloesch sets out the pivotal evangelical doctrines of the Bible's revelation, inspiration and interpretation.

Wishing to "defend the orthodox evangelical faith from its friends as well as its enemies," Bloesch provocatively argues against both evangelical rationalism and liberal experientialism. And he proposes the alternative of biblical evangelicalism - which sees Scripture as the written Word of God but stresses that it becomes the living Word of God only through the illumination of the Holy Spirit.

In dialogue with Martin Luther, John Calvin, P.T. Forsyth, Karl Barth and Emil Brunner, Bloesch's Holy Scripture examines the implications of biblical authority for the twenty-first century. It surveys the role of the Bible as seen within the Bible itself and as the role has unfolded through centuries of Christian tradition. It also explains and critiques many highly contested issues, such as the value of biblical criticism, the meaning of myth, the plethora of hermeneutical options and the nature of truth.

Donald G. Bloesch (1928 2010) was a noted American evangelical theologian. From 1957 until his retirement in 1992, he was a professor of theology at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa, where he continued as a professor emeritus. For more than forty years, he published scholarly yet accessible works that generally defend traditional Protestant beliefs and practices while seeking to remain in the mainstream of modern Protestant theological thought. He characterized himself a progressive evangelical or Ecumenical orthodox, criticizing the excesses of both the theological left and right. Bloesch s pietistic background and personal spiritual life lay at the heart of understanding his theology.

Reviews - What do customers think about Holy Scripture: Revelation, Inspiration & Interpretation (Christian Foundations)?

Readable  Oct 30, 2001
I enjoyed this book -- part 2 of a 7 part series on systematic theology. Bloesch represents a "progressive evangelical" approach and sees inerrancy limited to the overall intention of Scripture. I would have appreciated a greater discussion of the Warfield/Hodge approach to Scripture. While Bloesch argues that Scripture does not teach historical inerrancy, Warfield makes a good case that it does -- based on Scripture's own teaching. Bloesch should spend a little more time on traditional arguments. There is just too much concern with Barth, Brunner, Bultmann (a whole chapter!), etc.
