Good old James McGrath, who is something like the Lady Gaga of the biblioblogosphere if blog rankings are anything to go by, has been preaching against some sacred evangelical relics.
First, James has a post comparing the defence of the inerrancy of the Bible with the tactics used to defend Sarah Palin’s recent blunder on Paul Revere (though I think Stephen Colbert has proved beyond all reasonable doubt that her case is faultless!). My default setting is to adhere to the “infallibility” (WCF/1689 LBC) and “sufficiency” (39 Art.) of Scripture according to the historic Protestant confessions. “Inerrancy” is a robust assertion of biblical authority, though I’m fully aware that it can also go “a bridge too far” if not qualified and conformed to the phenomenon of Scripture. I should say that I’m also down to contribute to a book on 5 Views of Inerrancy in the future which will be one to watch out for. A response to James is made by Colin Hansen over at the Gospel Coalition website.
