Revisiting Inerrancy with Dr. Mohler

By now, most readers of The Seventh Sola will know of the deep respect in which I hold Dr. Al Mohler. Recently, Dr. Mohler headed up a panel discussion on the subject of biblical inerrancy—something that has been a bone of contention in the church for quite a while now.

The late Dr. Harold Lindsell wrote a fantastic book on this subject back in the 1960s called "The Battle for the Bible." As Dr. Mohler's panel shows, this subject is still paramount and absolutely must be understood by those having the responsibility to teach.

I have often thought that "The Battle for the Bible" ought to be updated and reprinted, especially in light of the "Emergent Church" battles of recent years. Barring that, I hope Dr. Mohler and other scholars perhaps will contribute a new anthology on this subject that will be useful for this and upcoming generations. Because the Battle for the Bible will never end until Jesus returns.
