Reviews - What do customers think about The Last Word: Scripture and the Authority of God--Getting Beyond the Bible Wars?
The Last Word...maybe Feb 14, 2007
This author is a renowned scholar of Scripture and as such carries a weight of many books and articles. I thought that he brought up many points that were valid, but he seems to "pick on" the church in the United States as the culprit for mis-readings. I think the Anglican Church, headed by the Archbishop of Canterbury has just as many problems and just as many "discussions" as the Episcopal Church. But that aside, this book is for Meat Eaters not Milk Drinkers. He does call for calm discussion and not mean rhetoric, listening rather than just talking to be heard. His take on some subjects are different than mine, but that is what it is all about...the Holy Spirit talking to him in one way, and to me in another.
Wright On Target Jan 3, 2007
N. T. Wright always has a lot to say, and much we should hear. While some of his works get quite lengthy and detailed, this little book is a gem, getting right to the point, and challenging all Christians to reclaim a positive understanding of Biblical Authority. If all believers could claim such a perspective, we would have much less dis-unity in the body of Christ. A must read for anyone who takes the Bible seriously, and hopes everyone else will, too.
