Summary

Allestree meant for The Lively Oracles Given to Us to serve as a partner to his treatise on the godly use of speech, The Government of the Tongue. While The Government of the Tongue deals with the spoken word, The Lively Oracles Given to Us deals with the proper use and application of the received word—the Holy Scriptures. Allestree addresses such topics as the purpose of scripture, the authority of scripture, the interpretation of scripture, and how scripture relates to the Incarnation of Christ. While Allestree grounds his argument in historical and theological tradition, he also provides practical advice for reading the Bible. With this book, he succeeds in unifying two virtues too often separated: scholarship and common sense.
