Scripture and Truth

, 1992
ISBN: 9781441250308


In what sense is the Bible the Word of God for Christians today? How should we think of the truthfulness of the Bible?

Scripture and Truth seeks to answer these key questions. It synthesizes, as have few other works, the apologetic reasons for an evangelical defense of biblical inerrancy. From a biblical, historical, or theological perspective each essay examines a challenge to belief in the integrity and reliability of Scripture. What emerges from these essays is a full-orbed restatement of this evangelical doctrine.

First published in 1983, Scripture and Truth will continue to strengthen the faith of many of God’s people in his reliable and truthful Word.

Resource Experts
Here is a book which is more than a mere defense of biblical inerrancy; it seeks also to explore the implications of such a view of the way in which we approach and handle Scripture.

—Peter Misselbrook, Evangelical Times

    This collection of essays from 12 distinguished scholars was first published nearly 40 years ago and is still relevant today. From Carson's "Redaction Criticism: On the Legitimacy and Illegitimacy of a Literary Tool", we can learn how to approach interpretative tools for the church, such as Critical Race Theory (CRT). Can CRT be used as an objective tool? Carson's essay shows us the clarity we should expect from such discussions. In Godfrey's "Biblical Authority in the 16th and 17th Century: A Question of Transition", he responds to the Rogers-McKim proposal. They proposed that the great reformers "fully recognized errors in the form of the Bible while maintaining the faithful fulfillment of its function." If Martin Luther and John Calvin, men who lived and died for the doctrine of salvation, could believe the Scripture to contain errors, then it's a possibility for all Christians to do likewise. But they didn't and Godfrey shows us the evidence. Helm's "Faith, Evidence and the Scriptures" was a surprising essay. I didn't expect an excursion into how the Scripture, Holy Spirit and Faith come together. Scripture and Truth is a platter of thought-provoking essays to be read by any student of biblical authority and scripture inerrancy. These great minds show us how far, wide and deep this topic can be.
