The Errancy of Biblical Errancy Mar 27, 2008
Norman Geisler and Company do another monumental powerful addition to the philosophical investigations involving biblical errancy. This work should be read along side another wonderful work on biblical errancy called "Inerrancy". This work is pretty heavy duty in terms of details and exhaustive analysis on the works of these Philosophers and gives lots of information to keep any honest lover of wisdom occupied for days. This work is strictly historical residual accounts of philosophies that are contra-inerrancy and have dominated schools of thought and theology like Liberal Christianity, Deism, Pantheism, Panentheism, Agnosticism, Atheism, and Mysticism. This book basically shows the fuels of Higher Criticism on the Bible as a plausible errant text by taking major contributions and movements in the History of Philosophy and inter-linking them in a chronological manner leading up to Modern Philosophy and it's contributions to views of the errancy of the Bible.
Here are a few topics which ultimately contributed to the modern distorted view of Biblical Revelation: Relativism(Cognitive and Moral), Misconception, Assumption of Immutable Induction, Natural Theology and the Uselessness of Revelation, Wittgensteinian Language-Games, Mysticism, Hegel's Absolute Spirit, Limits of Epistemics, Pantheism, Panentheism, Skepticism, Irrationality of Miracles, A. J. Ayer's Verification Principle, Contradictions, Materialism, Nihilism, Anti-Supernaturalism, Segregation of Faith and Reason, Dasein, and so much more.
Biblical Errancy has a general formula of presenting the Philosophers who contributed to modern conceptions of revelation. It is as follows: 1.Short Biography of the Philosophers 2.Possible Influences and Turning Points in the Lives of these Philosophers 3.Contributions to Philosophy of Biblical Errancy, their Works, and Impact on Modern Philosophy 4.Rebuttals, Refutations, and Problems with these Philosophers' Conclusions
Here is what lies inside this book (Chapter Titles) 1. Inductivism, Materialism, and Rationalism: Bacon, Hobbes, and Spinoza By Norman Geisler
2. Skepticism: Hume By Gary Habermas
3. Agnosticism: Kant By W. David Beck
4. Transcendentalism: Hegel By Winfried Corduan
5. Existentialism: Kierkegaard By E. Herbert Nygren
6. Atheism : Nietzsche By Terry Miethe
7. Noncognitivism: Wittgenstein By John Feinberg
8. Mysticism: Heidegger By Howard Ducharne Jr.
Bravo for Geisler and Company! The presuppositions of biblical errancy are rarely discussed in Christian circles, let alone in theology, but this book does humanity and especially Christianity a great service of documenting the origins of the faulty assumptions of errancy of scripture that general theologians, philosophers, and laymen alike subliminally subscribe to. This book deserves a wide audience and Christians would be wise to add this to their libraries as it would help see why some people have such a horrible view of God, Revelation, and Inerrancy of Scripture.
