Yeah, I'd have to read that book to see what I think because from what I hear, it sounds like pretty much what I think. I will say, sometimes it can be the case that historico-critical influence will often over-rely on extra-biblical sources over and against Scripture itself, but yes, we really ought to pay attention to them.

The book that I cannot recommend strong enough on this issue of Scripture, (and many other issues), is "The Drama of Doctrine: A Canonical-Linguistic Approach to Christian Doctrine." There is a lot going on in this book but one of the things that he does is re-work and revitalize the Scripture principle, in "Theo-Dramatic" terms. He also uses a lot of Nicholas Wolterstorff's "Divine Discourse" who discusses what God's Divine Authorship and "use" of Scripture really looks like in light of current speech-act theory.

(I know this doesn't really have a lot to do with your post, but I couldn't find a "contact me" link on your site to email you.)

Hey my name is D.O. and I recently posted a comment on your post about Shane Claiborne telling you about Another World is Possible. Well I've just got one more thing I wanted to tell you about and then I'll leave you alone. The folks who made the AWIP DVD's are making a feature-length documentary called "The Ordinary Radicals." The film will address many of the negative stereotypes that are affiliated with present-day Christianity, and tell the stories of ordinary folks who are disproving these generalizations. People doing pretty amazing things, motivated by their faith. I think you should check it out. Interviews include folks like Shane Claiborne, Rob Bell, Brian McLaren, Becky Garrison, and a whole host of others. If you'd like to learn more or pre-order the DVD, check out the website at www.theordinaryradicals.com.
