Inspired Imperfection by Greg Boyd

  • Gleason Archer’s Encyclopedia of Biblical Difficulties tries to explain the booboos. Could there be a simpler explanation?
  • How many preachers do you know that would survive a criticism of Bible inerrancy?
  • What, exactly, does “God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16) mean? If we assume that a perfect God would create a perfect Bible, we set our kids up to abandon their faith in secular schools. Why would we do that?
  • Can we wrestle with the weird parts of the Bible and still believe it came from God?
  • How do the problem passages enhance the Bible’s authority? How should we respond to the Village Atheist?
  • How would admitting that the Bible actually has errors give a whole new dimension to the concept of the love of God toward humans?

Here are the sermons that introduced the concept to the congregation that he pastors.
