Scripture is often described as 'authoritative', but what does this mean, given that the largest part of Scripture is narrative rather than command, and given that authority is generally viewed with much suspicion in a post-modern context? Offers great clarity on want it means to see Scripture as authoritative, and on the way makes some incisive comments on the subject of interpretation.
