a new book defending biblical historiography

The Bible is under fresh attack – not from liberals but from evangelicals (many of whom are the new liberals).

Back around the 70′s and 80′s  D A Carson and John Woodbridge along with some others edited and contributed to some important books defending inerrancy (the view that the original manuscripts of Scripture were totally free from error).  In defending this they were, in my view, defending what Christians have always believed, more importantly, what the Bible taught about itself. These books appeared to put to bed the whole question of inerrancy in the evangelical world.

However, the question of inerrancy is once again a hot topic in evangelical circles.  Thus the new book ‘Do historical Matters Matter To Faith?‘ edited by James K Hoffmeier and Dennis R Magary is welcome and timeous.  Its foreword by John Woodbridge identifies it as the next generation of these earlier books.  It comes highly recommended and looks like being a must for preachers, elders and students.

lost in translation?

Jim Hamilton has a very helpful article on the dangers of the ‘dynamic equivalence’ principle in translating Scripture.  In translating, there is a spectrum from literal to dynamic; too literal and the translation is unreadable, too dynamic and it is an interpretation and not a translation.  Are modern translations too dynamic? Read Hamilton here.  Have a look at his other posts on this topic too.
