Is Scripture truly divine, truly human, or both? Scholar Peter Enns thinks it’s the latter. This collection analyzes evangelical perspectives on the doctrine of Scripture. In Inspiration and Incarnation, Enns sets out to find if Scripture is unique, trustworthy, and authoritative. Using Scripture and extracanonical sources, as well as modern biblical scholarship, Enns shows how it is important to read Scripture in its historical context. He also shares how New Testament authors may have incorrectly interpreted Scripture according to their Second Temple Period contexts and traditions. The Evolution of Adam takes Enns’ studies on the doctrine of Scripture even further by comparing the Adam in Genesis with the Adam in Paul’s writings. Enns questions if Adam was a historical or mythical figure and analyzes if Christianity and evolution can coexist.
