Light in a Dark Place: The Doctrine of Scripture by John S. Feinberg is what I would consider deep and inspiring reading. This book is part of the Foundations of Evangelical Theology Series. It surprised me how much could be written about one word. It is insightful to read The author uses scripture to explain light and revelation. This book would be a great reference for any study of the names of God or how the term “light” is all through scripture from Genesis through Revelation. The book is broken up into four parts and a conclusion. Part one is entitled “Creating Scripture”. it discusses light unveiled and light written. Part two is entitled “Characteristics of Scripture”. It discusses true light and divine commanding light, Chapter three is entitled “Setting the Boundaries” it talks about light canonized. Chapter four is entitled “The Usefulness of Scripture”. It talks about Light embraced, clear understandable light, living powerful light, light enough, and enduring light. The conclusion leaves the reader with the argument “Light in a Dark Place, Does it make a difference?
I recommend this book for anyone wanting a deep study on light. It would make a great addition to any theological library.
