Great quote from Leon Morris:
My … point is that what we need more than anything is a way of looking at the Bible which holds fully to its authority, but which does not bog down on the defence of minor points. The Bible writers, while consistently regarding what they have written as reliable, do not speak of inerrancy. We must recognize that it is not our concern to show that every Bible statement can be proved to be in harmony with every other one and with the facts ascertained by various academic disciplines. It israther to show that the Bible is eminently trustworthy.
Wish I had quoted this in Biblical Inerrancy: Five Views, right on the money!
From his article “Biblical Authority and the Concept of Inerrancy,” Churchman 1967.
