The Formation of Christian Doctrine

by Malcolm Yarnell on Nov 1, 2007 from Books

The Formation of Christian Doctrine is a high-level academic study of the history of Christian doctrinal development. The book distinguishes at length between the scholarly term “inventio” (making explicit what is implicit in the biblical revelation) and the idea of “invention” (presenting a novelty as Christian teaching that conflicts with the biblical revelation). Specifically, The Formation of Christian Doctrine identifies biblical inerrancy as an invention but sees the “priesthood of believers” concept as a license to believe “whatever teaching seems right to me.
