Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This book presents a biblical way to relate modern science to Scripture. Almost half of the book deals with Jesus. How Jesus related his inspired teachings to science, what the words "Every jot and tittle" (Mt 5:18) and "Scripture cannot be broken" (Jn 10:35) mean in context, and how we know from Scripture that Jesus did not believe in absolute biblical inerrancy.

In the last half of the book, the author deals with Paul's view of Scripture and the biblical evidence that Paul did not believe in absolute biblical inerrancy. Near the end of the book the logical argument which inerrantists repeatedly use to prove that the doctrine of inerrancy is biblical is shown to be logically fallacious. It is also shown how inerrantists like E. J. Young have simply added their tradition of inerrancy to Scripture.

When the extreme view of biblical inerrancy is corrected by Scripture, Christians can still hold that Scripture is God's inerrant Word for the purpose for which it was given, namely, to make us wise unto salvation.
