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.
Among the chapter titles are these: Christ's View of Scripture
Alleged Errors and Discrepancies in the Original Manuscripts of the Bible Higher Criticism and Biblical Inerrancy
The Human Authorship of Inspired Scripture
The Meaning of Inerrancy
Philosophical Presuppositions of Biblical Errancy
The View of the Bible Held by the Church - B. B. Warfield Versus G. C. Berkouwer on Scripture
Included as an appendix is the Statement of the Council. This Statement consists of three parts:
A Summary Statement, Articles of Affirmation and Denial, and an Exposition.
The intent of this declaration underlies all of the chapters in this significant book.
