Many people look within themselves, mining their thoughts and feelings for “the voice of God.” And yet God has already spoken. The incarnate Word makes himself known in the written Word, and this communication keeps us personally connected to him. We need nothing else.
Gene Veith makes this clear as he examines not only the sufficiency of God’s Word, but also the flawed thinking of those who try to add to or detract from it. This passionate, personal booklet is a call for all of us to return to God’s Word as our one and only authority in faith and practice.
Basics of the Faith booklets introduce readers to basic Reformed doctrine and practice. On issues of church government and practice they reflect that framework—otherwise they are suitable for all church situations.
Gene Edward Veith (PhD, MPhil, MA, English, University of Kansas) is provost and professor of literature at Patrick Henry College, a Christian classical liberal arts college in Purcellville, Virginia.
"We are tempted to try to arrive at truth through the interpretation of our own experiences (empiricism) or what makes sense to us (rationalism). Why God Gave Us a Book convincingly explains the necessity of Biblical revelation: the Bible is enough. Veith’s writing restores faith in the supernatural and strengthens the Christian’s resolve not to be embarrassed by the Bible.” — Rod Mays, Reformed University Ministries
