About the Author

CHRISTOPHER BRYAN is the C. K. Benedict Professor of New Testament at the School of Theology at the University of the South, and the editor of the Sewanee Theological Review. He is the author of a commentary on the letter to the Romans and an introduction to the gospel of Mark.


This is a well written, carefully reasoned presentation which will be helpful to both clergy and laity who struggle with how to interpret what they read in the scriptures in the face of the factions, sectarian and divisive, which claim an absolute authority of interpretation, usually their own. * The Anglican Journal *
Bryan's lucid handling of subjects like canon, inspiration, and interpretation rests on masterful scholarship not flaunted in footnotes or marked with pretense. * Covenant *
There are at least a thousand great quotations in this book. * The Episcopal Evangel *
An excellent book for a class on the authority of the Bible. Can one even imagine a book on the authority and inspiration of the Bible that could be understood in simple language and Anglican too?! Well, this is it! This book has `soul.' * Prairie Spirit *
This is a brief but first-rate work of biblical theology for ordinary intelligent folks who hear a lector say, `The Word of the Lord' after Sunday's readings, but have said, `Thanks be to God' with little curiosity until now. * Covenant *
