Description

The doctrine of inerrancy has been taught for a millennium. Now, it's at risk.

Leading apologist and bestselling author Norman L. Geisler, who was one of the original drafters of the "Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy," and his coauthor, William C. Roach, present here a defense of the traditional understanding of inerrancy for a new generation of Christians who are being assaulted with challenges to the nature of God, truth, and language.

"In yet another generation, the inerrancy of the Bible is being called into question. Defending Inerrancy is a much-needed work and one that will start an important and timely conversation. This is a book that cannot, must not, and will not be ignored."--R. Albert Mohler Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"The authors give a very informative but deeply disturbing digest of several recent attacks on Scripture that have come from supposedly evangelical authors and institutions just in the past decade. It is time for genuine believers to awaken to this issue again and speak up with a clear, united voice of confidence and conviction. We owe a debt to Geisler and Roach for their willingness to stand at the front line in this renewed battle for the Bible."--John MacArthur, pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California; president, The Master's College and Seminary

"The earliest attack of Satan was on the question of whether or not God had really said what our first parents understood him to say. In this superb volume, Geisler and Roach have demonstrated once again that the attack, though an old one, must and can be answered. Anyone engaging the culture needs to read this book."--Paige Patterson, president, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

"The biblical doctrine of inerrancy is both true and of crucial importance for the life and health of the church. Geisler and Roach provide an excellent, up-to-date treatment of the recent history of the doctrine, an analysis of what it does and does not mean, and a response to recent attacks against it."--J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology; author, The God Question
