Book Description

There is a crisis of authority in society today. All inherited authority is suspect, being regarded as incompatible with man’s freedom, yet what has resulted is a disordered and dehumanized society.

But the source of this confusion lies in the church itself. The authority of the Bible has been called in question and commonly today the church is left without any sense of divine authority.

Dr. Lloyd-Jones faces this issue as he discusses the only road to recovery. We must reassert the divine authority of Christ, of his Word and of his Spirit or face ‘the blackness of darkness forever’. Authority, first published by the InterVarsity Press, gives basic treatment to a theme of enduring importance.

    Lloyd Jones is correct that ‘authority is one of the most important problems confronting us.’ This is possibly even more relevant today. We need to understand the authority of Jesus, the scriptures and the Holy Spirit anew. This mighty little book is much needed today.
