In Part 1, Carson selects essays written on such themes as how to interpret the Bible, recent developments in the doctrine of Scripture, unity and diversity in the New Testament, and redaction criticism.

This book collects five essays and five book reviews that are broadly united by the theme of Scripture. They cover a period from 1983 to 2008, and all are worth the effort in reprinting them.

This is trademark Carson benchmark scholarship, with a truthful yet pastoral heart throughout. Robust, rigorous academic writing.
