Finally, a new edition of this extremely helpful book looking at biblical inspiration by observing the process.

As the publisher and a former student of Alden Thompson, I spent some years persuading him to allow me to issue a new edition when the first one went out of print. In addition, as a former Seventh-day Adventist, I wanted to see some update to make some of the valuable information in this book more helpful to those not in that SDA tradition.

With a bridge chapter specifically designed to help with the gap in time and tradition, Alden Thompson has accomplished that goal. Those who believe in a modern gift of prophecy would be especially well-advised to read this book and consider the way the view inspiration and "words from the Lord."

Those who simply want a better overview of how the Bible came to be and some of the issues involved in discussing inspiration will benefit as well. The book is clearly written with extensive illustrations directly from the text of the Bible. Despite it's 450 pages, which is the result of using 12 point type and some generous white space, I'd call it concise considering the ground it covers.
