Customer Reviews for Zondervan Inerrancy

Zondervan Inerrancy

This is another in a series of books sponsored by the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy. The fourteen leading evangelical scholars who have contributed to this volume come from various denominations and have written on a wide range of topics related to the doctrine of the inerrancy of the Bible. Believing that this doctrine is "an essential element of the authority of Scripture and a necessary ingredient for the health of the church of Christ," they have made a strong defense of it. This book is presented as an appeal to the church of Jesus Christ. To those churches that hold to the inerrancy of Scripture, it is a call to hold the line. To those churches that have given way to the persuasions of radical higher criticism, it is a call to return to the historic position of Christianity. Inerrnacy is shown to be a doctrine of crucial importance to the church.

Norman Geisler (PhD, Loyola University) is president of Southern Evangelical Seminary and author or coauthor of over fifty books including Decide for Yourself, Baker's Encyclopedia of Apologetics, and When Skeptics Ask.

An exceptional collection of essays from some of the top Christian writers of our time on one of the most crucial issues pertaining to the Christian faith. What's not to love? I'll still put out the warning that this is a scholarly book. If you don't read things on that level you won't enjoy it. It's not one of those only scholars can read but it's still at an above average level I think.

When I think of books that changed my life this makes the top ten list. After reading this I have more trust in scripture than ever before. Plus I have am better prepared to debate with member of the LDS, RLDS, and other faiths that read from the Bible but do not believe in its inerrancy.

Geisler clearly and effectively lays the outline for the traditional Biblical doctrine of inerrancy.

This book covers all of the necessary issues regarding the inerrancy debate. It has articles from many different Christian scholars, theologians and pastors. It is a must read for anyone who is studying the debate and is seeking the evangelical stance.

A great book! Covers the standard evangelical stance on the inspiration of Scripture, and demonstrates the necessity of this stance in today's world.

Assuming one has prior assumptions that say: God is sovereign, thus He must act in a specific way, and that His concern was total and complete scriptural inerrancy in every way (whether not such ideas transcended cultural or intellectual norms), then perhaps, one can take this book seriously. For, in the final analysis, meaningful religious apprehensions are the criteria in this work--certainly neither scientific objectivity nor methods have any real place. Thus, for more objective and scholarly analyses by evangelicals see Donald Bloesch, C.S. Lewis, Bernard Ramm, Clark Pinnock, Joel Greene, Donald Hagner, William LaSor, etc.
