Not just a book, but the Book-the Word of God written, the only infallible rule of truth and practice for our lives

Not just a book, but the Book-the Word of God written, the only infallible rule of truth and practice for our lives. Sadly that distinction is necessary, because there are many who question whether the Bible deserves to be called the Book, or whether it is just a book-a very special book, to be sure, but not the Book that perfectly illumines all things. And the more they chip away at the full confidence that believers must have in the trustworthiness of Scripture, the more they rob its Author of the glory that his Word displays and demands.

As the line between these distinctions increasingly blurs, Fluhrer has compiled selected addresses from 30 years of the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology that home in on this issue.

Many evangelicals are questioning the authority of the Bible and the glory of its Author. Here eight leading pastor-scholars seek to restore that glory by arguing for the inspiration and inerrancy of the Word. As the line between these distinctions increasingly blurs, Fluhrer has compiled selected addresses from 30 years of the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology that home in on this issue. There is some repetition here, and occasional dry spells, but the premise of Scripture’s inerrancy and trustworthiness is vital and worthy of sustained reading.

The best reason is that it’s full of contradictions. Millions of liberals see the bible as the word of God but understand the truth that the bible has been used in an unholy way by those that wanted to use its power to empower their own political ambitions like the Nonhebrew roman politician that oversaw the creation of the new testament and created the church that gave the world the false image.

Gabriel Fluhrer, W. Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Stephen Nichols, and Burk Parsons will remind us that, because the Word of God is still active, it will not return to Him void even today. The Cradle of Christianity. Over twelve nights and thirteen days, you’ll get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the sights where the early church was born and grew.

This is a book about the Book.Not just a book, but the Book -- the written Word of God, the only infallible rule of truth and practice for our lives. Sadly, that distinction is necessary, because there are many who question whether the Bible deserves to be called the Book, or whether it is just a book -- a very special book, to be sure, but not the Book that perfectly illumines all things. And the more they chip away at the full confidence that believers must have in the trustworthiness of Scripture, the more they rob its Author of the glory that his Word displays and demands. What's worse is that more and more of these attacks are coming from those who claim to be believers themselves.Here the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology explores the Author's glory by unfolding the richness and perfection of the Bible. In essays collected from the best addresses on the subject, eight of the top pastor-scholars of the past thirty years share their insight and answers on: knowing God, the sufficiency of God's Word, the truth of God, scripture alone, God's word in the church, the accessibility of God's Word, the power of God's Word, and preaching as means of revival.Together, they issue a clarion call for the church to return to its central, longstanding, and vital conviction that the Bible is the Book -- the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God.

Our small group Bible Study has found these articles to be quite helpful in encouraging our faith. The book which leads us and builds us up is God's Holy Word as it is read, preached, and taught is tantamount to the Christian faith and these writers give us a full court press on the importance of its inerrancy and holiness in the lives of believers and to the entire world.

Highly recommend this compilation of articles to anyone and to keep it handy on their bookshelf of important books.

I'm a new believer needing solid ground.
I want good evidence the Bible is divine for myself and to convince others.
This book does not do it from my admittedly very quick skimming.
What would be solid ground?

Solid examples of good prophecy fulfillment that required divine inspiration rather than human inspiration would work for me.
Or maybe some statements later proven by science that could not have been humanly made based on current science.

Over the past several years I've read a number of books on inerrancy and reviewed almost half a dozen books on the topic. In all my reading and thinking about this topic, I've come to the conclusion that inerrancy will be one of the defining issues of the coming decade inside and outside the Church.

In the helpful book Solid Ground The Inerrant Word of God in an Errant World edited by Gabriel N.E. Fluhrer leading Reformed thinkers such as Drs. Packer, Sproul, and Ryken write to addresses the unfolding richness and perfection of the Bible. These essays are collected from the best addresses on the subject from the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology by eight of the top pastor-scholars of the past thirty years who share their insight and answers on the Word of God.

While the whole book is excellent, I especially thought chapters six (on the centrality of the Word through preaching in the Church) and chapter eight on preaching: the means of revival to be helpful and edifying contributions to the discussion on the doctrine of Scripture. The main idea Dr. Clowney communicates in chapter eight is how the power of preaching doesn't come from the "energy of the flesh, it's the power of the Word and Spirit" (154).

The focus of Christian preaching and teaching should be on preaching Christ and Him crucified in the power of the Holy Spirit. Preachers who are more interested in providing comic relief or entertainment to their hearers have failed to grasp the importance of preaching the Word of God in season and out of season. Preaching that God uses and that glorifies Him is preaching that is explicitly tied to and grounded in the Word He gave to His people. Preaching that fails to make the point of the Scriptural text the point of the sermon isn't preaching but preaching that makes much of the preacher and not God.

The goal of Christian preaching isn't just to give an information dump or lecture, but rather to preach the Word in such a way that believers and non-Christians are confronted with their own sin and the truth about what Jesus has done in His death, burial and resurrection. It is precisely such biblical preaching that is needed today because such preaching is the means God will use to bring revival to our land, and health and vitality to our local churches.

I recommend Solid Ground The Inerrant Word of God in an Errant World edited by Gabriel N.E. Fluhrer, because it's a clarion call for the church to return to its central, long-standing, and vital connection that the Bible is the Book--the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God.
