The Erosion of Inerrancy in Evangelicalism

G. K. Beale has another new book due out in November (see the other book here).  It is entitled: The Erosion of Inerrancy in Evangelicalism: Responding to New Challenges to Biblical Authority.  The book appears largely to be a response to Peter Enns.  Check it out here.

    Are you aware of A.T.B. McGowan’s The Divine Authenticity of Scripture: Retrieving an Evangelical Heritage (IVP, July 2008)?

    McGowan surveys the debate between the infallibalists and inerrantists and seeks to resolve the “talking past each other” by suggesting “authenticity.” In essence, his argument is for a modified infallibalist position. He also seeks to respond (although in a minor way) to Enns’s position.

    I read through this quickly and found it to be very helpful. I should re-read it. I’m curious to know how his argument will differ from that of Beale.

    I haven’t read the book. I will check it out. Thanks. I assume that much of Beale’s material will be an expansion of his essays he wrote in JETS and Themelois regarding Enns’ position.

    I’m among the uninformed. Enlighten me! What is Enns position?

    The issues revolve around his book Inspiration and Incarnation. He writes three major chapters in which he deals with OT issues. I would make two suggestions.

    1.) Purchase and read Enns’ book so you know exactly what he is saying.

    2.) Then read some reviews on it. I would suggest reading Carson’s review on Refomation 21. If you have access to a seminary library read Beale’s reviews in JETS.

    If neither of those are an option just do a web search and I am sure plenty of information will come up.
