My Approach to the Inerrancy Issue Nicely Summarized

Over at the BibleGateway Blog is a good summary of my approach to the inerrancy question from the book Biblical Inerrancy: Five Views.

Just to qualify, I’m not opposed to inerrancy per se, I believe in Scripture as trustworthy and true, infallible to the matters to which it speaks, and authoritative for the life of the church. Inerrancy is one way of saying that, but its not the only way, what some people mean by inerrancy can be problematic, and the word inerrancy hardly ever appears in statements of faith outside of North America. That’s the burden of my song.
