What is scripture's relation to the believer? What kind of authority is "scriptural authority"? How do we gain access to that authority for guidance in our lives?Professor Countryman proposes that the scripture be understood as a word which prompts more questions that it answers, that in scripture God has not uttered the last word for us but the first, and that in scripture God has given us "a word designed to set us off on a pilgrimage in pursuit of that life that God has willed for us to have."Biblical Authority is ideal for teachers and students of scripture in the parish and in the classroom. The book discusses and uses various tools and styles of exegesis.
