A carpenter making his own tools
is an explanation of why I, Pastor-Missionary David Cox, write my own material. I like the idea of producing the material that we use in our ministry and also for evangelism.
Read the short article: A carpenter making his own tools.

In this older work by Bryant, he begins with preliminary discussions on the Canon of the OT and NT, and the character of Scripture (divine-human), and errors of Scripture. He then turns to the inspiration of Scripture, and the Holy Spirit’s involvement in the production of Scripture, the prophets (and false prophets), and the writers of Scripture. The he turns to the Scriptures as inspired writings and what this means. Next he explores the revelation of Scripture by God. and the next section the evidences of revelation. In this chapter he deals with miracles and revelation. Finally he deals with the moral manifestion and its relationship with Scripture.

In this 86 chapter book on inspiration and revelation, Bryant (Methodist) has it divided into 5 parts: preliminary discussions (8 chapters), inspiration (13 chapters), The Scriptures as inspired writings (13), revelation (23), and revelation and its evidences (3). This book is a result of the Hartley lectures (Methodist) for 1899.
