Books at a Glance
There is little doubt that the inerrancy of the Bible is a current and often contentious topic among evangelicals. Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy represents a timely contribution by showcasing the spectrum of evangelical positions on inerrancy, facilitating understanding of these perspectives, particularly where and why they diverge.
Each essay in Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy considers:
- the present context and the viability and relevance of inerrancy for the contemporary evangelical Christian witness;
- how certain views on the doctrines of God and inspiration, as well as truthfulness, stand behind the different understandings of inerrancy; and
- three difficult kinds of biblical texts, one that concerns intracanonical contradictions, one that raises questions of theological plurality, and one that concerns historicity.
Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy serves not only as a single-volume resource for surveying the current debate, but also as a catalyst both for understanding and advancing the conversation further. Contributors include R. Albert Mohler Jr, Peter Enns, Michael F. Bird, Kevin J. Vanhoozer, and John R. Franke.
