Some say that inerrancy is either unimportant, irrelevant, or unnecessary to the faith.
But that is simply not so, says Dr. Charles Ryrie. Belief about the Bible assumes a place of primary importance in one's doctrinal system. It has to. For if even one part of the Bible is thought to be false, how can any of it be trusted as true?
Through convincing facts and explanations, Dr. Ryrie proves to readers that God did not permit man to divert, misdirect, or erroneously record his message. The Bible, the entire Bible, is inerrant and can be trusted to be totally reliable.
Charles C. Ryrie is a renowned author and scholar. He has written dozens of books which have sold more than 1.5 million copies worldwide.
