The Doctrine of the Bible
by David S. Dockery
Originally published by Convention Press in 1991 as the official doctrinal study for the Southern Baptist Convention that year, this new edition features the original preface, a new preface, an expanded and updated bibliography, and original and new endorsements.
“Perhaps in God’s good providence, this little book may provide encouragement for some to reexamine the message of Scripture and there re-discover the drama of the redemptive message found only in Jesus Christ,” Dockery writes in the preface of the new edition. “We pray that the book will serve as a guide for others who have questions about the Bible, its meaning, and its authority.
“Primarily, we hope that the book will strengthen the convictions of God’s faithful people, granting them assurance of the full truthfulness and complete authority of God’s Word written as the inward work of God’s Spirit bears witness by and with the Word in our hearts.”
