". . . can only have a positive impact on the present generation's thinking about both the character of Scripture and proper theological reflection."See All
". . . urgently needed to respond to a resurgence of historical nonsense. . . careful with his primary sources, avoids claiming too much, and sets a standard for evenhanded historical theology on this question that deserves to be the norm and not the exception."See All

From the Preface, by Richard B. Gaffin Jr.: "This study, written for the 100th anniversay of J. Gresham Machen on 28 July 1981, first appeared as a two-part article, uner the title, "Old Amsterdam and Inerrancy?," in the Westminster Theological Journal (44 [Fall 1982] 250-89 and 45 [Spring 1983] 219-72). It is reprinted here with minor revisions...I offer it here confident that the views of Abraham Kuyper and Herman Bavinck on Scriptrure it considers have perennial value for the well-being of Reformed and evangelical theology and church life and so make a singularly important contribution to the crucial debate about Scripture that continues unabated today within evangelical circles, further complicated as they currently are by recently ermergent "post-conservative evangelical" impulses."
