Been Reading

Finished Vol. I of Cottrell’s Trilogy on God Sunday morning. The titles of the Trilogy are “What The Bible Says About God the Creator, Vol I, the Ruler, Vol II, and the Redeemer Vol. III.

Stimulating read.

Though we are on opposite poles, theologically, on a number of points, we are certainly on the same page insofar as it pertains to the place and role of the scriptures. Early on Cottrell declares:

1) The Bible is our source of knowledge of God
2) The Bible is inspired, i.e. God breathed and
3) The Bible is understandable, i.e. perspicuous.

As soon as I read those statements, and in the words of John Wesley, although in a differing context, “…my heart was strangely warmed…”!

At the moment, I am about ½ way through Vol. II. Stimulating!
