The Erosion of Inerrancy in Evangelicalism: Responding to New Challenges to Biblical Authority
Pages 304 pages
Great treatment of many contemporary challenges to biblical inerrancy. Surrounding mostly(but certainly not only) OT scholarship issues, Beale shows that there is still no good reason to abandon inerrancy, not that anyone should be surprised. Issues discussed are relation of Ancient Near Eastern myth and OT, Use of OT in the NT(an area Beale is leading the way in), postmodern trends, Isaiah authorship, OT and scientific cosmology and more as well as some helpful appendix material including the Chicago statement on inerrancy and quotes from Barth's 'church dogmatics' exposing his erroneous view of 'errant and fallible' scriptures showing that he shouldn't be a model for evangelical thought on scripture.
