Fundamentalism and the Word of God
This modern classic by the author of Knowing God provides a comprehensive statement of the doctrine of Scripture from an evangelical perspective. J. I. Packer explores the meaning of the word “fundamentalism” and offers a clear and well-reasoned argument for the authority of the Bible and its proper role in the Christian life.
“An amazingly comprehensive book that will supply evangelicals with a reasoned statement of their own position and challenge liberals to re-examine their fundamental presuppositions.” — Donald Guthrie
“A forceful, lucid, and informed defense of the authority of Scripture.” — Christianity Today
