Abstract:

Ask the basic question, "Just what is the Bible and what is it up to?" and gives the very concrete answer: "The Bible is God showing us himself, giving witness to himself." How? In many different ways, as the book shows, but always by a "word" that is a "deed" -- by the word of primal history in Genesis, by the word of Israel's national history and institutions, by the word of schools of religious teachers--prophets and scribes: and at the centre of the whole pattern, of course, by the Word become man: Christ, the divine word who is self-explanatory.
