Rob Rienow addresses two serious, common problems in his helpfully brief book, Reclaiming the Sufficiency of Scripture. The first is that too few people and churches believe the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture. The second is that too many people and churches say they believe it but fail to practice it. Rienow’s survey of church history and contemporary practice adequately defines and illustrates both problems. His reminders of the deceptiveness of the human heart demonstrate the folly underlying our assumption that we can improve on biblical truth and methods.

The Sufficiency of Scripture Paperback – May 1, 1999. by Noel Weeks (Author). The rest of the book is more academic and, though I found it somewhat interesting, I did not find it particularly helpful personally. It is written to defend the Bible from those inside the church who would undermine it, often while claiming to uphold it. Weeks talks about relativism, creation, politics, church government, women in church leadership, Bible translation, etc and how truly upholding the Bible’s authority in these areas will affect the conversation.

Reclaiming the Sufficiency of Scripture. She said that it was offensive to her when I kept using this phrase, as if the Scriptures were the only means of authoritative truth that we had. Never Too Late: Encouraging Faith In Your Adult Child. Again, I was stunned. After further interaction with her, I realized that in three short years she had gone from passionately following Christ to the point where she no longer believed that the Bible was the unique and authoritative Word of God.

Christians share a commitment to the inerrancy of Scripture, but have we slipped on our commitment and understanding of sufficiency? We believe the Bible is true, but do we believe it is enough for every matter of faith and practice? Rob Rienow invites us to reexamine this vital doctrine and understand the foundation it sets for advancing the Gospel at church and at home. This book encourages the reader to apply God's Word to every area of ministry.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. As a disclaimer: I am not a big fan of the doctrine of: "Sola Scriptura". But a review should be based on the merits of the writing, not whether or not a reader agrees with the premise of the work. Another disclaimer: I am a big fan of Rob Rienow. I think he is one of the best teachers I have seen.

So I had a little tension reading the book. I think the style was engaging; it felt more like Rob was there speaking than as if I was reading a: scholarly, dry, apologetic, work; it was very engaging. I particularly appreciated chapter four. Chapter four is a place where I think that even non-fans of "sola - scriptura" will find a lot to think about and apply.

My big disagreement and bias against the doctrine of "sola scriptura" is that I think a plain reading of the text shows that Christ - commissioned people; He did not commission a book. I also happen to have, for better or for worse, a very ecumenical spirit. So I see this doctrine as one thing that divides the Eastern Churches, as well as the Roman Catholic Church from the Protestants. I see this doctrine as a non-essential. I do however appreciate other folks passion for the doctrine, and I think this book was a very good expression/defense/rationale for the doctrine.
I have loved reading this. It sheds great light on how scripture speaks to far more than we often realize. Well written and very easy to read.
It's always good when we're reminded where to go first when we have questions.
A valuable book for all Christians in the midst of our 21st century, American culture. Solid, biblical truth. Highly recommend.
Awesome book! I highly recommend it! This book is easy to read and worth your time and money! You will be glad you got this book!
Sufficient: enough to meet the needs of a situation or a proposed end. Synonyms: enough, adequate, competent--measuring up to all requirements without question (Merriam-Webster).

This book is completely competent and is enough to explain this issue effectively through personal stories, illustrations, examples and easy-to-understand language. In fact, "sufficiency" and "jurisdictional," both found in the introduction, are the toughest two words in 77 pages, so it's an easy, but insightful, read.

"Yes!" "Great Point!" "Very Good!" "Thank You!" "Amen!" "Perfect!" and "Exactly!" are jotted in my margins, along with "Sad, but true."

I especially liked what he wrote about the supernatural power of the Word, and the warnings about adding to it or taking away from it. His explanation of legalism is very helpful and, if you've ever been falsely accused of it, freeing.

Rob is confident enough in the Word to make a bold statement about Darwinian evolution and the Bible's sufficiency for science, with some great "arguments" and a logical line of reasoning.

And Rob touches on a vital area that Satan has kept too many from seeing for too long: that based on the Bible alone, "God created parents and grandparents to be the primary spiritual trainers of their children at home," not church leaders. Really? Yes, really.

So get it. Read it. Use it. It will enlighten and encourage you, and provide a great tool to help you express what you believe about the Word, and why.

Remember the children's song, "The B-I-B-L-E"? Well, that's the book for me! I stand alone on the Word of God--"a sufficient guide for every matter of faith and practice." Nothing else is its equal, its match, its companion, its partner. Nothing else measures up. Nothing else can compare because it's the B-I-B-L-E and it's enough. It's sufficient.
Over the years the Church has lost the emphasis on the sufficiency of scripture. Too often we look for answers outside of scripture alone. Rob Rienow is a master teacher who does a wonderful job explaining how we can believe the Bible alone for every matter of faith and life. He explains very clearly the definition of "Legalism." He explains the difference between "Legalism" and "Rebellion."
Rob also covers in great detail the lost "Doctrine of Jurisdiction." God clearly communicates not only His mission but also His methods. God tells us what He wants done and how He wants it done. God uses four fundamental jurisdictions: the individual, the family, the local church, and government. What typically happens in our society is we assign a problem to a jurisdiction which is not consistent with scripture. As a result, we don't solve the problem. In addition, the proper jurisdiction for handling that problem loses motivation. This Doctrine of Jurisdiction explains many of the problems we're experiencing in our society today.
I recommend this book for every Christian and especially for church leaders.
Many churches affirm the doctrines of the authority and sufficiency of Scripture. Yet many of these same churches are drifting away from the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture for faith and practice. The enticements come in many forms, some subtle, some more blatant.

Rob's focus on the sufficiency of Scripture as the foundation for addressing issues of church and family life is very wise. Anything less is like trying to build a house on sand as Jesus described in Matthew 7:26-27. Sometime a storm will come that will undermine the whole enterprise.

I pray that many who have drifted will read this book and repent for the sake and glory of our Lord Jesus Christ and for His church.
