    The doctrine of inerrancy has been taught for a millennium. Now, it's at risk.

    Leading apologist and bestselling author Norman L. Geisler, who was one of the original drafters of the "Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy," and his co-author, William C. Roach, present here a defence of the traditional understanding of inerrancy for a new generation of Christians who are being assaulted with challenges to the nature of God, truth, and language.


    "Well, here we go again. In yet another generation, the inerrancy of the Bible is being called into question. This time the issues are often more subtle, but they represent a clear and present challenge for those who would defend and affirm the perfection of the Holy Scriptures. Defending Inerrancy is a much-needed work and one that will start an important and timely conversation. This is a book that cannot, must not, and will not be ignored."--R. Albert Mohler Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

    "In the following pages Norman Geisler, who contributed as much as anyone to International Council on Biblical Inerrancy's [ICBI] original legacy, and William Roach interact with evangelical hypotheses that have the effect of confusing that legacy. They are masterly gatekeepers, and I count it an honour to commend this work to the Christian world."--J. I. Packer, from the foreword

    "Even in the days of the ICBI, Norm Geisler knew that every generation would have to address the question of the faithfulness of God's Word. After all, the earliest attack of Satan was on the question of whether or not God had really said what our first parents understood him to say. In this superb volume, Geisler has demonstrated once again that the attack, though an old one, must and can be answered. Anyone engaging the culture needs to read this book."--Paige Patterson, president, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

    "The biblical doctrine of inerrancy is both true and of crucial importance for the life and health of the church. Geisler and Roach provide an excellent, up-to-date treatment of the recent history of the doctrine, an analysis of what it does and does not mean, and a response to recent attacks against it. I am glad to see this book come out and happy to recommend it."--J. P. Moreland, distinguished professor of philosophy, Talbot School of Theology; author of The God Question
