Book Review: Fundamentalism and the Word of God

“Fundamentalism” and the Word of God by J.I. Packer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An excellent introduction to some of the more liberal arguments leveled against Scripture. He keeps his eye on the ball and refuses to allow liberal scholars to get away with shifting the topic under debate. He emphasizes the authority of Scripture throughout the book. His sections on the connection between reason and faith are some of the best in the book. He shows how we are to think faithfully, not attempt to reason outside of our faith. Some of the language is dated. For example, he uses “Biblical Theology” in a way it is no longer normally used. He does a good job critiquing certain aspects of Fundamentalism without throwing it out entirely. The book does not answer all questions, but it is a good starting point for those who want a more in depth analysis of the liberal attack on Scripture.
