God Speaks | Gabriel Gordon
Slide Background

If God cannot control free creatures, then how did the biblical authors interact with God's revelation to produce the biblical text?

With the rising popularity of Essential Kenosis, the dismantling of popular notions of inspiration through historical criticism, and a reclaiming of the interpretative methods of the early church, God Speaks puts forth a doctrine of inspiration and revelation that better accounts for these realities while more faithfully securing our allegiance to Christ.

God Speaks is a powerful and thought-provoking book that discusses how:

Our Theology of God deeply effects the rest of our theologies—particularly our view of the Bible's inspiration

The notion that God is uncontrolling better accounts for how the Bible actually behaves and describes a God worth worshipping

Popular notions of Inspiration are idoltrous in the sense that they create a God subject to the Bible and thus must be rethought of.

Thomas Jay Oord's theology of Essential Kenosis, or the uncontrolling love of God, has major implications for the nature of Scripture

To challenge any concept of biblical inspiration that equates it with authorship, is ultimately to challenge the idolatry of Scripture latent in much of the church's theology
