"New" Gaffin Book
There is a "new" book by Richard Gaffin just out--the quotes around "new" are there because it is actually the reworking of a two-part article originally published in the Westminster Theological Journal in 1981. These articles, now titled God's Word in Servant-Form: Abraham Kuyper and Herman Bavinck on the Doctrine of Scripture, originally targeted the so-called Rogers/McKim thesis on the doctrine of biblical inerrancy. Now, they serve as a historical-theological corrective to other questions being raised on how the human and divine in Scripture relate and how incarnation and inspiration connect. On the back someone noted, "...Gaffin mines these stalwarts of the Reformed tradition for wisdom and insight in the inpsiration and inerrancy of Scripture...a must-read for pastors, students, theologians, and laymen alike!"
