God's Word in Human Words

Full Product Description

This a through and methodological work which provides theologically based and a devout place to stand in the integration between critical work and faith. In bridging the gap between critical scholarship and traditional views on scripture, Sparks, takes in informative tour through hermeneutics, Assyriology, Patristic and Reformation Theology, with a plea to take Historical criticism more serious in evangelical circles.

In a brief summary Sparks proposes an approach to Scripture that incorporates the gains of critical scholarship into a view of the authority of the Bible.
