I think Paddison’s and Messer’s The Bible, Culture, Community, Society will prove over time to be such a book

I think Paddison’s and Messer’s The Bible, Culture, Community, Society will prove over time to be such a book. Why do I say this? For several reasons. First of all, this book asks and answers effectively important questions of biblical authority in the context of our present post-Modern, post-Christendom era where everything is questioned and all authorities are up for grabs. Second, this book asks and answers these questions by engaging some of the brightest minds of our day who outline simply and cogently how we should think about the Bible and its impact in the twenty-first century.
