This was such a landmark book that it really needs to be available in Logos. It was originally published by Zondervan. ISBN 0310276810

The Battle for the Bible – Harold Lindsell

Is the Bible inerrant or not? Author Dr. Harold Lindsell answers in the affirmative-Yes, It Is! Discussing the meaning of special revelation and inspiration, Lindsell shows the Scripture's witness to itself and the historical view of inspiration and its implication. The basic fact is that a view of "limited inerrancy" has crept into evangelical Christianity. The basic problem is that a view of limited inerrancy invariably leads to concessions in matters of faith and practice. The basic need is for the church to be aware of the problem and to articulate her belief in Biblical inerrancy without fear and without compromise. Dr. Harold Lindsell leaves no doubt that the battle has been joined.

Yes

This book pre-dates my caring much about the nature of Scripture, but as a Southern Baptist, I can't fail to acknowledge its influence on the path of my own denomination. It is not coincidental that the 'conservative resurgence' really took flight just a year or two after the book was released.

I've never read it. I really ought to do so.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

I just got my hands on a print copy after listening to someone discuss the impact it had. He apparently got a whole lot of folks mad one way or the other. Ever since Genesis 3, God's authority seems to do just that. Geeked

This was a foundational book when it was first released and was a text when I was in Bible College in the 70s. (wow, that's a while ago!)

It would be fantastic if we could get "The Battle For The Bible & The Bible in Balance" together here in LOGOS on pre-pub, or if we could bid for them. I would not hesitate to buy them.

Absolutely. This is so much a core author and it's surely still a big issue.
