Biblical Authority after Babel: Retrieving the Solas in the by Kevin J. Vanhoozer

By Kevin J. Vanhoozer

How the 5 Solas Can Renew Biblical Interpretation

In fresh years, impressive students have argued that the Protestant Reformation unleashed interpretive anarchy at the church. Is it time to contemplate the Reformation to be a 500-year test long gone wrong?

World-renowned evangelical theologian Kevin Vanhoozer thinks no longer. whereas he sees fresh opinions as valid, he argues that retrieving the Reformation's center ideas deals a solution to critics of Protestant biblical interpretation. Vanhoozer explores how a formal reappropriation of the 5 solas--sola gratia (grace alone), sola fide (faith alone), sola scriptura (Scripture alone), solus Christus (in Christ alone), and sola Deo gloria (for the dignity of God alone)--offers the instruments to constrain biblical interpretation and determine interpretive authority. He bargains a good review of the Reformation, exhibiting how a retrieval of "mere Protestant Christianity" has the capability to reform modern Christian trust and practice.

This provocative reaction and assertion from a best theologian is accessibly written for pastors and church leaders.
