Vanhoozer explores how a formal reappropriation of the 5 solas--sola gratia (grace alone), sola fide (faith alone), sola scriptura (Scripture alone), solus Christus (in Christ alone), and sola Deo gloria (for the honour of God alone)--offers the instruments to constrain biblical interpretation and identify interpretive authority. He deals a good evaluation of the Reformation, exhibiting how a retrieval of "mere Protestant Christianity" has the capability to reform modern Christian trust and practice.
This provocative reaction and assertion from a most sensible theologian is accessibly written for pastors and church leaders.
