A Peculiar Glory

John Piper recently released a book called A Peculiar Glorywhere he explores what it means for Scripture to be self-attesting. In this companion video to the book, Michael Reeves interviews Piper on the book and the topic. In the interview, Piper cites a number of influences including Calvin, Edwards, and the Westminster Catechisms, and Reeves mentions similarity between A Peculiar Glory and some of John Owen’s work. They talk about both the helpfulness and the limits of historical, evidential arguments in light of the self-authenticating nature and authority of Scripture itself; there are points where they both seem to be channeling Van Til without mentioning him (see Van Til’s article on “Nature and Scripture,” for example).

So I commend both the book and the video to you. See for yourself.
