Abstract:

"In this succinct and significant book, N.T. Wright delivers a helpful lesson for our times on how to understand the place of scripture and the authority that the Bible can still hold in the midst of the religious confusion so prevalent today.

Revealing how both evangelicals and liberals misread scripture, Wright shows the way we can restore the Bible to its rightful role as a guide for the church through its many controversies."--Jacket.
