God's Holy Fire: The nature and function of scripture

$ 14.95

by Mark W. Hamilton, James W. Thompson, & Kenneth L. Cukrowski

The title of this volume, God's Holy Fire, is taken from William Butler Yeats' poem, "Sailing to Byzantium." This poem speaks of a yearning for a place of truth and beauty that is beyond our daily routines. Like the poet, we desire to live in such a place. The image of fire also evokes the words of Jeremiah 20:9, "Is not my word like fire?" Fire has the power to consume and renew life. Jeremiah speaks of a "fire in [his] bones" so overpowering that he can no longer hold it within himself (20:9). The image indicates that the Bible contains potent words for any age.
