"Confidence in the authority and inerrancy of Scripture is ebbing today, even in evangelicalism. Postmodernism and certain hermeneutical presuppositions threaten to undermine the foundations of evangelicalism. Greg Beale's sturdy, convincing, and courageous defense of the accuracy and inerrancy of Scripture bolsters our assurance that God's Word is true. Praise God for this scholarly and spirited defense of the truth of Scripture."
—Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"At last, a leading biblical scholar has produced a full-blown defense of biblical inerrancy in a user-friendly style. This is just what is needed in the current debate, and Beale has provided it magnificently."
—Gerald Bray, Research Professor of Divinity, History, and Doctrine, Beeson Divinity School; author, God Is Love and God Has Spoken
"The nature of Scripture has been an ongoing issue of controversy in evangelicalism for decades, yet today the orthodox position of inerrancy is under severe attack as in no other period-and the attack is coming from evangelicals themselves. Beale has done a great service in attempting to bring us back to the right way of thinking about the Scriptures. They are indeed fully inerrant and fully authoritative. This book is a must-read for our generation."
—John D. Currid, Carl McMurray Professor of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina
"As evangelical scholarship has come of age and evangelical scholars confidently take their place in the mainstream academy, a danger lurks that we might lose any sense of what makes us evangelical scholars. Beale's book sounds a much-needed warning against abandoning our evangelical moorings. Though he is not an Old Testament or ancient Near Eastern scholar by training, he nevertheless provides a penetrating critique of Peter Enns's challenge to evangelical notions of inerrancy, leaning on reputable OT and ANE scholarship in doing so. He also presents invaluable original analyses to bolster his case in areas of his own specialties-early Judaism, hermeneutics, and the Old Testament in the New. I highly recommend this book."
—David M. Howard Jr., Professor of Old Testament, Bethel University, St. Paul, Minnesota

Overall, this was a very weak response to Enns. Beale's use of prior journal articles (which resulted in unnecessary repetition and a lack of clarity), his summary of Enns... Read morePublished on December 23, 2011 by Adam Shields

This book deals with an important topic. However, it definitely is not an easy read, and I personally believe it could have been done better. Read morePublished on March 19, 2011 by Jeffrey C. Reynolds
G.K. Beale does a horrible job at arguing about inspiration. The title suggests a book that deals with the "meat" of the matter; not so, this book is about Beale's beef with Enns. Read morePublished on January 11, 2011 by The Inquirer
An addition to personal library, do not know when chance will arise to read as seminary still requires another year of reading, no time for personal pursuits at this time.Published on March 1, 2010 by GodsAmbassador
