Publisher's Summary

The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook’s direct narration of a book’s text, Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy: Audio Lectures include high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources.

There is little doubt that the inerrancy of the Bible is a current and often contentious topic among evangelicals. Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy: Audio Lectures showcases the spectrum of evangelical positions on inerrancy and facilitates understanding of these perspectives, particularly where and why they diverge.

Each main lesson in Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy: Audio Lectures considers: the present context and the viability and relevance of inerrancy for contemporary Christian witness; whether and to what extent Scripture teaches its own inerrancy; the position's assumed/implied understandings of the nature of Scripture, God, and truth; and three difficult biblical texts: one that implies intra-canonical contradictions, one that raises questions of theological plurality, and one that concerns historicity.

Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy: Audio Lectures serves not only as a resource for surveying the current debate, but also as a catalyst both for understanding and advancing the conversation further. Featuring scholars Al Mohler, Kevin Vanhoozer, Michael Bird, Peter Enns, and John Franke, these lectures provide listeners with the tools they need to draw informed conclusions on this debated issue and is an ideal resource for traditional students, students in distance and online-learning courses, and self-learners wanting to better understand Christian theology.

A good discussion on whether the Bible is true

Generally, I thought this was a fruitful discussion on whether the Bible when rightly interpreted is true. Though in the end, it felt like mainly a critique of the Chicago statement on inerrancy without alternate models put forth.

It would be nice if audible could add names to the chapters in the app rather than just stating chap 1, chap 2... The chapters are:
1. Introduction J. Merrick
2. When the Bible Speaks, God Speaks: The Classic Doctrine of Biblical Inerrancy by R. Albert Mohler, Jr.
(3–6) four responses
7. Inerrancy, However Defined, Does Not Describe What the Bible Does by Peter E. Enns
(8–11) four responses
12. Inerrancy Is Not Necessary for Evangelicalism Outside the USA by Michael F. Bird
(13–16) four responses
17. Augustinian Inerrancy: Literary Meaning, Literal Truth, and Literate Interpretation in the Economy of Biblical Discourse by Kevin J. Vanhoozer
(18–21) four responses
22. Recasting Inerrancy: The Bible as Witness to Missional Plurality by John R. Franke
(23–26) four responses
27. Conclusion: Opening Lines of Communication by Stephen M. Garrett
(I know my numbering only goes to 27 and the subtitle says 28 lessons, but unless you count the end credits it seems to only be 27...)

Being an audiobook it would help to have a narrator announce a title to each new chapter; otherwise, it can be hard to know who is speaking.
