The Rationality of Belief in Inerrancy

March 12th, 2006

By Matthew Lee Anderson

So why do conservative Christians believe in inerrancy anyway? JP Moreland, philosopher par excellence, argues for it here.

I think this will clear up some of the issues regarding contemporary fundamentalist Christian's views of inerrancy brought up in Mr. Anderson's response to a comment elsewhere regarding the tenability of fundamentalist belief.
