We all have questions about it. Can we trust it completely? Does it really contain everything we need for our complicated lives? Can we really know what it teaches, or just our own interpretation of it? And shouldn't we focus on Jesus, rather than the Bible?

Taking God At His WordHeloise Hearn, via The Good Book Stall
An old Sunday School song says, “The best book to read is the Bible”! ‘Taking God at His Word’ by Kevin DeYoung tells you why. It is a straightforward, clear and short (8 chapters) exposition of the doctrine of scripture.
Scripture has four essential characteristics: sufficiency, clarity, authority and necessity. All of these terms, and other theological terminology used, are explained clearly and simply. What the Bible says about itself is foundational to the book and relevant verses are also clearly expounded. The relationship between Jesus, (the Word) and Scripture, (the word) is outlined along with what Jesus believed about Scripture.
Although there is an element of application (the encouragement to read the Bible pervades the whole book) this is primarily an academic type of book, teaching a particular doctrine.
There is a very helpful annotated bibliography at the back of the book, should you want to read more on the subject.

"Why is it that we will not grow spiritually unless we steep ourselves constantly in the Bible? Why can't we separate even for a moment love for God from love for Scripture? In this book Kevin DeYoung gives some of the most Bible based, pastorally aware, sane and exciting answers to these questions you'll find." - Tim Ward, Associate Director, Proclamation Trust Cornhill Training Course.
