Minimizing the Bible?

Having written some articles previously on the issue of interpreting the Bible and handling the Bible correctly in my articles Interpretation Based on Fantasy and Those who call themselves Christians... I found a very interesting Fresh Word by John Piper called Minimizing the Bible?
He starts by saying:
"I have been pondering a possible relationship between the minimizing of the Bible in so-called seeker-driven churches and in some of the radical forms of contextualization that have emerged in missions. Perhaps there isn’t any connection. But I wonder. The common denominator that I am pondering is the loss of confidence that declaring what the Bible says in the power of the Holy Spirit can create and sustain the church of Christ."
Just thinking...
