Book Review: Light in a Dark Place – The Doctrine of Scripture by John S. Feinberg

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.

I am a seeker of Jesus, wife of Tim, homeschooling mom of six. I created Doodles in the Margin as a place for everything that I do while being a seeker or Jesus, a wife and a mom. I love to read and learn. I found the joy of reviewing books. This blog is where I have my book and curriculum reviews as well as things the the LORD has revealed to me to share. I love to learn about God and help others grow in their relationship with God by talking about the books that I have read. I spend a lot of time sharing with other parents what works for my kids in our homeschooling journey. I started Doodles in the Margin to share the home school resources that I have created. Right now I have my resources available on my Teachers Pay Teachers store. I started Overwhelmed Dreamer to share the notes that I have taken along my journey with Biblical dream interpretation. Songs by Jano is my podcast that I set up to share the music that I wrote. I also like to edit books, sew, decorate cakes, and make pinatas along with many other things including graphic design and designing websites. More information can be found on the links in the menu.
