There is no book better than the Bible. It is God’s own word. He breathed it into existence. He does wonderful things in and by it. But there is hardly a book more assailed, mocked, and assaulted than the Bible. New Testament Professor Guy Prentiss Waters delves into the doctrine of Scripture. Addressing the revelation, inspiration, inerrancy, sufficiency and perspicuity of the Bible, he also engages with what some other prominent theologians had to say on the subject.

… faithfully explains not only what the Bible is, but why God has given it to us―what He has designed for His Word to do in and through us. Along the way, Waters also teaches us both how to read the Bible and how to apply it to our daily lives.
Robert W. Yarbrough
This is an important contribution to a discussion necessitated by what an apostle called ‘God’s oracles’ (Rom. 3:2) in an intellectual atmosphere that prizes human speculation over divine revelation.
Joel R. Beeke
While Christians put their trust in the Lord, their knowledge of the Lord depends upon His sure and steady Word, the Holy Scriptures. Therefore, the doctrine of the Holy Scriptures is central to the Christian faith. Guy Waters helps us to listen to God’s testimony in His Word to the inspired reliability of His Word. This much-needed, well-written book stands firmly in the tradition of Augustine, Calvin, Turretin, and Warfield as it teaches and defends the Bible’s inspiration and authority.
D. A. Carson
It is a first–class treatment of the doctrine, rich in the categories of systematic and historical theology. … it is written with the admirable clarity and deceptive simplicity for which Waters is becoming known. And finally, it ends with courteous but firm engagement with Karl Barth and Peter Enns.
Stephen J. Nichols
What can be more important than understanding the Book that God gave us? Dr. Guy Waters thoroughly, carefully, and winsomely sets before us the riches of the doctrine of Scripture. He alerts us to faulty thinking of the past and the present and also commends to us a faithful and orthodox view of the Bible, the very words of God, which are life itself.

… meets challenges head–on, showing how the Reformed doctrine of Scripture, which takes seriously Scripture itself, best answers challenges old and new. Waters helps us see how the Bible is―wonderfully―a book unlike any other.
