Justin Taylor on Why We Need Christian Books

Only one book is absolutely essential to save us, to equip us to obey God’s will, and to glorify Him in whatever we do. Only one book gives us undiluted truth–the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Only one book serves as our ultimate and final authority in all that it affirms. That book, of course, is the Bible, God’s Holy Word. . .

And yet the irony is that if we use only this book, we may in fact be in disobedience to it. We should count good teaching about the Bible–whether through commentaries, books, sermons, study Bibles, and so on–to be a gift from God for the good of His church (see Eph. 4:11; James 1:17). So what may look pious on the outside (“Just me and my Bible!”) can actually mask pride on the inside. . . READ MORE
