Publisher's Description

Is historical accuracy an indispensable part of the Bible's storyline, or is Scripture only concerned with theological truths? As progressive evangelicals threaten to reduce the Bible's jurisdiction by undermining its historical claims, every Christian who cares about the integrity of Scripture must be prepared to answer this question.

Do Historical Matters Matter to Faith? offers a firm defense of Scripture's legitimacy and the theological implications of modern and postmodern approaches that teach otherwise. In this timely and timeless collection of essays, scholars from diverse areas of expertise lend strong arguments in support of the doctrine of inerrancy. Contributors explore how the specific challenges of history, authenticity, and authority are answered in the text of the Old and New Testaments as well as how the Bible is corroborated by philosophy and archaeology.

Do Historical Matters Matter to Faith? arms Christians with fresh insight, arguments, and language with which to defend Scripture's historical accuracy against a culture and academy skeptical of those claims.

Contributors include Richard E. Averbeck, Robert D. Bergen, Craig L. Blomberg, Darrell L. Bock, Graham A. Cole, Robert B. Chisholm Jr., Thomas W. Davis, Michael G. Hasel, Michael A. G. Haykin, Richard S. Hess, John W. Hilber, James K. Hoffmeier, Jens Bruun Kofoed, Dennis R. Magary, Thomas H. McCall, Alan R. Millard, John M. Monson, Steven M. Ortiz, Eckhard J. Schnabel, Richard L. Schultz, Jason Stanghelle, Willem A. VanGemeren, and Robert W. Yarbrough
