In the modern world, our old formulas and theories about the Bible no longer seem sufficient. It doesn’t fit into our categories of “inerrant” or “infallible” or “inspired.” The modern crisis of authority has touched the church as well.  Scripture Revisited: A Theology of the New Testament and Christian Tradition is an attempt to think through anew what exactly we mean when we call the Bible “scripture.” In it, Gerhard points forward to a way of thinking about the Bible that both acknowledges its many problems and retains its status in the church as sacred scripture. By recovering an ancient theory about scripture, we will be able to face our Bible as modern people without being embarrassed by it.
