Thy Word Is Still Truth

NewImageIch habe das Buch Thy Word Is Still Truth: Essential Writings on the Doctrine of Scripture from the Reformation to Today bereits im Oktober 2013 vorgestellt  Ich möchte es hier nochmals als wichtige Quelle für die Lehre von der Schrift erwähnen. Thomas Schirrmacher schreibt in seiner Buchempfehlung:

“Even though the Reformation started with Luther’s return to the Bible as the highest authority in the Church, and even though the doctrine of the infallibility of Scripture has been taught in all evangelical confessions and denominations and its development has been influenced by people from many confessions, it was the Reformed doctrine of Scripture, spreading from Switzerland, that became central to the evangelical positions through the centuries, both by means of terminology and manner of defense. For example Calvin’s application of the inner witness of the Holy Spirit to the doctrine of Scripture, declaring that the final evidence for Scripture as the Word of God comes from the author, the Holy Spirit, directly to the believers heart, has been central in the Evangelical movement and balanced any impersonal approach to hermeneutics. No wonder then, that Reformed seminaries have been at the forefront of formulating, developing, and defending the doctrine of Scripture. I am glad that Westminster Theological Seminary – Philadelphia takes the lead again by gathering 500 hundred years of good tradition, proving how the old truth has been applied to ever new ages again and again.”
