Chapter 1 articulates a short doctrine of Scripture. The author believes that it is doubtful whether a coherent understanding of the nature of Scripture can be sustained where there is not at the same time a grasp of the message of the Bible. It is important to know the God who stands behind the Bible. In the second part of the essay Carson explores the changing face of hermeneutics, and how to interpret the Bible.
