A Pathway into the Holy Scripture contains revised versions of papers given at the jubilee meeting of the Tyndale Fellowship for Biblical and Theological Research, and event that coincided with the 500th anniversary of the birth of the English reformer William Tyndale. The book includes a discussion of Tyndale as biblical interpreter, surveys of current trends in Old and New Testament scholarship, treatments of biblical theology and of Paul's view of Scripture, chapters on biblical hermeneutics and the doctrine of inspiration, and studies discussing the role of Scripture in the church in earlier periods and in the present day.
