Recommended Reading on the Sufficiency of Scripture

by | Jul 28, 2019 | The Sufficiency of Scripture, Featured

In this issue of Theology for Life Magazine, we’ve been considering the subject of the sufficiency of Scripture and how it helps Christians to no longer be tossed to and fro (like a wave in the ocean), but to stand wholly on the Word of God no matter what ministry they have. We understand that we haven’t covered everything on this topic, but it is our prayer that, hopefully, readers of this issue of Theology for Life will grow in their understanding of it so they can stand fast on the Word of God.
