The Can We Still Believe the Bible? blog tour is underway through March 27 among 11 scholarly bloggers to discuss the book of the same title by Craig L. Blomberg, distinguished professor of New Testament at Denver Seminary.
In the book, Blomberg argues that a careful analysis of the evidence shows there is reason to be more confident in the Bible in the 21st century than ever before.
Throughout the world, people accept or reject the inerrancy of Scripture, remaining unaware of ancient standards of trustworthiness while thinking that inerrancy must mean that the Bible conforms to modern standards of precision in reporting. Few wrestle with what inerrancy means for literary genres besides history or biography, but many insist that all narrative genres must report nonfictional events.
[My book’s] main claim is that the Bible very much can be trusted, even in light of the kinds of skepticism sketched out here.
