Format: Paperback
Evangelicals & Scripture: Tradition, Authority and Hermeneutics is a collection of essays which takes the reader through an exploration of possibilities for a distinctly evangelical doctrine of Scripture, with a heavy critique on the inerrantist position. The book is divided into three sections. The first explores the historical development of the evangelical movement and its doctrine of Scripture. In the second section, the essays explore the nature of exegesis in such an evangelical doctrine of Scripture, with particular attention to difficulties in speaking of the "original autographs" of the Bible. Thirdly, the book investigates the face of evangelical hermeneutics in light of the challenge of postmodernism.

The book paints a general picture of historic evangelicalism which has struggled to defend its positions on Scripture, basing its arguments on what it sees as the authoritative and "central Christian tradition." Thomas Buchan explains how both inerrantists and non-inerrantists base their arguments in the search for such a tradition. Donald Dayton challenges the inerrancy view it from a Pietist perspective. Dayton suggests that 75 to 80 percent of the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) consists of traditions stemming from the Pietistic tradition (85-6). Pietism, according to Dayton, has tended to have a strong respect for the commands of the Bible while also allowing for questions of textual criticism. Dayton thus challenges the assumption that the majority view of evangelicals is staunch inerrancy. [This was one of my favorite essays in the book.]

The challenges of textual criticism to the inerrancy position are explored in the historical developments of biblical scholarship with both Old and New Testaments.
