Subjectivism and reason dominates the authority in liberalism and the believer in liberalism assumes that God communicates with humans through emotions, human reason and feelings. Liberalism can be described as a mixture of anthropology and psychology. Neo-Orthodoxy is objective in the sovereignty of God, but subjective in the experience of faith.

The writing is undoubtedly excellent and the translation reliable. However, the volume notes appear to have been written by individuals who do not believe or have faith in God. For instance, this was especially clear in James and 1st Timothy, where the notion of prophecy as a visualization of the future is not even considered; even to quarrel against it (Meeks 1745). Hence, the reader is not granted the alternative of deciding the nature of the supernatural or miracles. Even though, I understand that this is a matter which people need to decide... Theology...
