The traditional view of inerrancy, which means the Bible is totally without error, prevents the erosion of the authority and accuracy of Scripture. Leading apologist and bestselling authors William C. Roach and Norman L. Geisler, one of the original drafters of the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, present a defense of traditional understanding. Written for a new generation of Christians who are being assaulted with challenges to the nature of God, truth, and language, this volume is a valuable resource.
“Martin Luther affirms that ‘the Scriptures, although written by men, are neither of men nor from men but from God’ (Luther’s Works 35:153).” (Page 18)
“Fuller Seminary faculty removed inerrancy from their doctrinal statement.” (Page 20)
“We affirm the unity and internal consistency of Scripture” (Page 29)
“Some authors we are considering, like Bart Ehrman (chap. 5), explicitly deny any kind of biblical inerrancy. Others, like Clark Pinnock (chap. 4) and Andrew McGowan (chap. 9), deny unlimited inerrancy. But some, like Kevin Vanhoozer, claim to affirm inerrancy but adopt philosophical positions that undermine it.” (Page 132)
“Many young evangelical scholars seem slow to learn that methodology determines theology. And a naturalistic methodology will lead to a naturalistic theology.” (Page 201)
