“Fake News” Theology
How and Why We Use Biblical Authority to Dodge God’s Authority
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Sparks throws down a frank and refreshing reminder that superficial appeals to 'biblical authority,' rather than defending God's authority, create theological systems that are at odds with Scripture's own leading. Sparks is subtle, learned, concise, and absolutely clear. This book will become a go-to source for understanding the nature of the Bible and what it means to read it well today."
--Peter Enns, Abram S. Clemens Professor of Biblical Studies, Eastern University, author of Inspiration and Incarnation
"A good book--or good lectures--pokes and prods, challenges and questions, opens up new horizons and sheds light on old ones, and comforts and stretches the reader. If we end up reading a book and find ourselves in total agreement with the author, what have we learned? I find Kent Sparks' contextual approach to reading the Bible to be quite helpful. I hope you do, too."
