In Scripture and the Authority of God: How to Read the Bible Today, Widely respected Bible and Jesus scholar, N. T. Wright gives new life to the old, tattered doctrine of the authority of scripture, delivering a fresh, helpful, and concise statement on the current “battles for the Bible,” and restoring scripture as the primary place to find God’s voice.
In this revised and expanded version of The Last Word, leading biblical scholar N. T. Wright shows how both evangelicals and liberals are guilty of misreading Scripture and reveals a new model for understanding God’s authority and the Bible.

Another excellent book from N.T. Wright, the most prolific thinker and writer of this generation. This book deals with the improper ways most people read the Bible in the western world. He dismantles modernity and post-modernity and offers a solution in the unfolding narrative of God which climaxes with the death and resurrection of Jesus.
Scripture and the Authority of the Bible
N. T. Wright provokes the reader to think about Scripture's authority by looking at the Bible in five divine acts whereby God progressively moves from an old corrupt created order (due to sin) to a new created (due Jesus' life, death, and resurrection). Great emphasis is placed on recognizing that the Bible is not "flat" but rather God's progressive revelation whereby believers are currently living in God's fifth act ... God's new created order. And though not a progressive dispensationalism by any means, many of Wright's perspectives parallel that of Bock and Blaising. Another example may be found in the book Jesus the Messiah: Tracing the Promises and Coming of Israel's King where an emphasis also exists in viewing the Bible as progressive revelation concerning the concept of messiah.
