New Testament scholar and theologian D. A. Carson is one of the foremost defenders of the authority of Scripture in our generation.  His Collected Writings on Scripture, a collection of essays and reviews on the doctrine of Scripture, is sure to become a classic work on this topic for serious students of Scripture, pastors and teachers.  Carson’s essay on “Approaching the Bible” is one of my favorites – an excellent study of the Word of God as divine revelation and how it should be interpreted.  I also found Carson’s essay on “Recent Developments in the Doctrine of Scripture” to be a helpful analysis of some of the more recent revisionist and higher criticism debates.  Part Two of Collected Writings on Scripture contains Carson’s reviews of nine important books on the doctrine of Scripture.  These books, along with Carson’s five essays in Part One of the book, represent some of the best scholarship over the last 30 years on the doctrine of Scripture.  I commend it to serious students of Scripture, pastors and teachers.
