Too Much Bible?

As recently as last week I have heard leaders in the church say that we have “too much emphasis on Bible teaching.” I take issue with that. If anything, there seems to be too little excellent instruction in the Word. To be fair, there is also too little “Bible living” which may be the point of those recent comments, but we must take care to not devalue the importance and centrality of the Word of God. In many ways I like the incarnational emphasis some are encouraging, but how can you incarnate Jesus without knowing His word, that which he proclaims to be true.

While musing on this, I came across this short post by Mark Dever which includes a great quote from David Wells on this very subject.
