Review quote

-Miroslav Volf is one of the most exciting and well-respected theological voices on the American scene today. In the long run, however, the only work that lasts is by those theologians whose reflections arise from a deep attentiveness to and engagement with Holy Scripture. This volume shows that Volf is in that worthy company. Captive to the Word of God will enrich and nourish readers for many years to come.- -- Timothy Larsen Wheaton College -Full of insight and wisdom for those who wrestle with the challenges of living out Christian faith with the Bible in one hand and today's newspaper in the other.- -- John R. Franke Biblical Seminary -Volf has written a book of wisdom and clarity that connects the Bible, theology, and the meaning of Jesus Christ in a world hungry for love and truth. A book of sound biblical theology in dialogue with the culture of pluralism, this is a superb read!- -- Timothy George Beeson Divinity School, Samford Universityshow more
