RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 857981037 LA English T1 The inspiration and interpretation of scripture : what the early church can teach us A1 Graves, Michael,, YR 2014 SN 9780802869630 0802869637 AB What is true of Scripture as a result of being inspired? What should divine inspiration cause us to expect from it? The answers to these questions in the early church related not just to the nature of Scripture's truth claims but to the manner in which Scripture was to be interpreted. In this book Michael Graves delves into what Christians in the first five centuries believed about the inspiration of Scripture, identifying the ideas that early Christians considered to be logical implications of biblical inspiration. Many books presume to discuss how some current trend relates to the "traditional" view of biblical inspiration; this one actually describes in a detailed and nuanced way what the "traditional" view is and explores the differences between ancient and modern assumptions on the topic. -- Publisher.
