There is a common assumption that the Bible is “full” of errors and contradictions, and that its often-unusual people and events render it useless for today. These ideas are fueled by the teachings of scholarly critics, who seem to delight in raising questions about the Bible’s truthfulness and integrity.

But the critics of the Bible are wrong, according to Dr. R. C. Sproul in this Crucial Questions booklet. In fact, he says, there are many solid reasons to trust the Bible. With Jesus, with the apostles and prophets, and with men of God throughout church history, Dr. Sproul affirms a high view of Scripture—that it is inspired of God and therefore inerrant and infallible.

With the Logos edition, Can I Trust the Bible? is fully integrated with the other resources in your digital library, including Bibles, maps, dictionaries, and numerous other Bible study tools. All Scripture references are linked directly to the text of your favorite Bible translation, making your Bible study and teaching preparations more effective and rewarding. You can also explore Scripture on a deeper level with powerful search features, Passage Guides, and all the other interactive features in your Logos library. That makes this important book more useful than ever before for pastors, teachers, Bible study leaders, and anyone else desiring to get deeper into the truth of God’s Word.

“Ultimately, we believe the Bible to be inerrant because it comes from God Himself. It is unthinkable to contemplate that God might be capable of error. Therefore, His Word cannot possibly contain errors. This is our faith—we can trust the Bible because we can trust God.” (Page xii)

“Scripture is inerrant, not in the sense of being absolutely precise by modern standards, but in the sense of making good its claims and achieving that measure of focused truth at which its authors aimed.” (Page xxvi)

“Those who profess faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are called to show the reality of their discipleship by humbly and faithfully obeying God’s written Word. To stray from Scripture in faith or conduct is disloyalty to our Master. Recognition of the total truth and trustworthiness of Holy Scripture is essential to a full grasp and adequate confession of its authority.” (Page xiii)

“The authority of the Bible is based on the fact that it is the written Word of God.” (Page 1)

“inspiration. The church’s part was to discern the canon that God had created, not to devise one of its own.” (Page xxiv)

    I've often encountered people who take "Inerrancy" to mean some sort of extreme literalism, or to be the domain of the sort of fundamentalism that quickly shuts down honest discussion. It was quite refreshing to read this short commentary on the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy (included in the book) which presents a far more "sound" view on what Inerrancy is and means as far as Scripture is concerned. Whilst I have read the Chicago Statement in the past (probably about 30 or so years ago), I hadn't read this book written by one of those involved with the Statement. I would recommend it to any who wish to have a better understanding on what is meant by Inerrancy - too often "straw men" are built that are easily demolished, and using statements like this can help prevent that. So this is a short easy to read book - and I would recommend it to more than just Evangelicals. I also applaud the inclusion that belief on inerrancy is not a requirement for Salvation ;-)
