Word and Supplement: Speech Acts, Biblical Texts, and the Sufficiency of Scripture

Couverture
Oxford University Press, 2002 - 332 pages
What are Christians saying when they call the Bible the Word of God? How is that statement to be understood in relation to postmodernity's suspicion of meaning? Word and Supplement tackles these questions by bringing the post-modern theory of Derrida (from whom the idea of supplement is
borrowed), Barth, Fish, Gadamer, and many others into critical dialogue with the often-neglected doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture.
