"Those who take the authority of scripture seriously," says Tom Wright, "should think through what we mean by that phrase." Today all around us authority is being challenged on an almost daily basis, and the Bible does not escape this. In this context, how does the authority of scripture function? What is the nature of authority? What is the proper use of scripture? Do we have too low a view of the Bible's authority? In this lecture Bishop Wright addresses these questions and more.
