Former pastor and Grace College and Seminary faculty member, D. Brent Sandy, has co-authored a new book with Wheaton College professor John H. Walton. The Lost World of Scripture (IVP Academic 2013) looks at the culture the had an impact on the writing of the scriptures. In the preface, the authors say, “In this book, we are exploring ways God chose to reveal his Word in light of discoveries about ancient literary culture. Our specific objective is to understand better how both the Old and New Testaments were spoken, written, and passed on, especially with an eye to possible implications for the Bible’s inspiration and authority.”
Sandy, a member of the Winona Lake, Ind., Grace Brethren Church (Bruce Barlow, lead pastor), teaches New Testament and Greek at Wheaton College. Walton is a professor of Old Testament at Wheaton.
