Free Friday! Biblical Authority

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $12.95, is Biblical Authority: The Critical Issue for the Body of Christ by James T. Draper, Jr. and Kenneth Keathley.

The basic problem that we face today has to do with knowledge and truth. It is not the quantity of truth which is being debated, but the source of truth. Where does genuine truth originate, and how can we know that something is actually truth? This is the burning issue challenging every serious Bible student and Christian today.

In a world faced with every kind of religious pluralism, it is as imperative today as it has ever been for the Bible to remain the absolute standard by which all things are judged.

The subject of biblical authority may be the most critical and sensitive issue facing the evangelical Christian world today. the rippling effect of this discussion has touched every major theological and philosophical issue under consideration.

James T. Draper, Jr. and Kenneth Keathley deal with this issue in a clear and concise way. They examine modern critical thought and historic positions of the church as well as new methods in interpreting the Bible such as reader response criticism and postmodern hermeneutics. Biblical Authority will strengthen one’s faith in the Word of God.
