Words of Life: Scripture as the Living and Active Word of GodA theological outline focuses on the relationship of Scripture with each of the persons of the Trinity. In this book timothy ward explains and defends what we are really saying when we trust and proclaim, as we must, that the Bible is God's word. A final chapter explores some significant areas in which the doctrine of Scripture should be applied.
In particular he describes the nature of the relationship between the living God and Scripture. He examines why, in order to keep in step with the holy spirit, we need to base our lives on the words of the Bible; and why, we need to pay close attention to the Bible; why, in order to worship God faithfully, the Word-made-flesh, in order to be faithful disciples of Jesus, we need to trust and obey what the Bible says.
