Defenders of the Bible can often cite chapter and verse from Scriptures to support their particular point of view. Biblical critics, on the other hand, are rarely as adept at citing biblical passages to defend their analysis. Merely knowing that the Bible contains many fallacies and contradictions is not enough to make an effective argument. The skeptic needs a comprehensive reference tool to allow quick retrieval of biblical contradictions, errors, and fallacies.Biblical Errancy: A Reference Guide has been compiled specifically to meet this need. This work addresses virtually every significant dilemma of the Bible; arranges them by topic; and delineates the problems within each. Besides its handy alphabetical organization of subject matter, Biblical Errancy has many other user-friendly features: it arranges the cited verses within a subject heading in the order in which they appear in the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation; it uses a system of marking verses with one, two, or three asterisks to indicate their importance to the topic under consideration; and it has many cross-references to related areas of interest. Although many books critique the Bible from a wide variety of perspectives, none have been structured in such a manner as to provide a virtually exhaustive body of critical information that can be retrieved on a moment's notice on nearly every biblical topic imaginable. The volume and scope of the material discussed is such that anyone having any interest whatsoever in Scriptures will find something of value in these pages.C. Dennis McKinsey (Hilliard, OH) is the editor and publisher of the Biblical Errancy Newsletter and the author of the The Encyclopedia of Biblical Errancy.

Philosophy has given us insights into the reflections of thinkers on such subjects as God, mankind, the world, and the possibility of knowing ultimate reality. The processes of reasoning and the conclusions of logic are often intensely fascinating. Dr. Geisler reminds us, however, that the premises and the arguments of philosophy are often faulty, leading to a wholly inadequate view of knowledge and revelation. He reiterates Paul's warning to the Colossian Christians: See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy. The contributors to this volume show how the basic presuppositions of many philosophers lead to a denial of a divine, inerrant revelation. The views of some modern theologians regarding revelation find their roots in such deceptive philosophy. Chapter titles are: -'Inductivism, Materialism, and Rationalism: Bacon, Hobbes, and Spinoza' - Norman L. Geisler -'Skepticism: Hume' - Gary R. Habermas -'Agnosticism: Kant' - W. David Beck -'Transcendentalism: Hegel' - Winfried Corduan -'Existentialism: Kierkegaard' - E. Herbert Nygren -'Atheism: Nietzsche' - Terry L. Miethe -'Noncognitivism: Wittgenstein' - John S. Feinberg -'Mysticism: Heidegger' - Howard M. Ducharne, Jr.

In his most ambitious book yet, Clifford Pickover bridges the gulf between logic, spirit, science, and religion. While exploring the concept of omniscience, Pickover explains the kinds of relationships limited beings can have with an all-knowing God. Pickover's thought exercises, controversial experiments, and practical analogies help us transcend our ordinary lives while challenging us to better understand our place in the cosmos and our dreams of a supernatural God. Through an inventive blend of science, history, philosophy, science fiction, and mind-stretching brainteasers, Pickover unfolds the paradoxes of God like no other writer. He provides glimpses into the infinite, allowing us to think big, and to have daring, limitless dreams.

It has been some time since Catholic and liberal Protestant theologians stopped writing seriously on bibliology. Meanwhile, conservative evangelical theologians guard against the introduction of new ideas. In an effort to make headway through this gridlock, Carlos Bovell has commissioned a roundtable discussion on the prospect of whether the inspiration of Scripture might extend beyond authors and texts, and if so, what this might entail for the authority of Scripture. Taken together, the essays in this volume make an invaluable contribution to contemporary literature on the inspiration and authority of the Bible.

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" (2 Tim. 3: 16). According to this verse, the bible is a divinely inspired moral guide. However, the critical analysis of Scripture that comprises the contents of this book clearly demonstrates that this claim is invalid for a number of reasons. For example, the multiple contradictions and absurdities contained in the bible confer an unreliability upon it that undermines its function as a guide for anything, let alone moral decision making. Furthermore, many of the ideas it promotes are actually spiritually harmful. And unless the misogyny, violence, intolerance, injustice and cruelty can be removed, then it is difficult to view the Scriptures as even remotely resembling an unassailable divine guide to ethical conduct. Moreover, the many errors that it contains, including those about the natural world, obviates the claim that the bible is divinely inspired. In the course of using the verses themselves in discussing such topics as biblical errancy, bible-based morality, the nature of the biblical god, the nature of a religion based on the bible, and the bible's stance on science, nature and truth, it will be shown that any belief that it is either divinely inspired or a trustworthy guide to right living is both misguided and delusional. In addition, the insights of such thinkers as Nietzsche, Feuerbach, Spinoza, Shakespeare, Euripides, Dostoyevsky, Camus, Sartre, Maugham, Augustine, Aquinas, Twain, Chaucer, Einstein, Freud, Ingersoll, Mencken, and others will be used to illuminate the true character of the bible, that it is a far more profane thansacred book.

According to the authors, the doctrine of inerrancy has been standard, accepted teaching for more than 1,000 years. In 1978, the famous "Chicago Statement" on inerrancy was adopted by the Evangelical Theological Society, and for decades it has been the accepted conservative evangelical doctrine of the Scriptures. However, in recent years, some prominent evangelical authors have challenged this statement in their writings. Now eminent apologist and bestselling author Norman L. Geisler, who was one of the original drafters of the "Chicago Statement," and his coauthor, William C. Roach, present a defense 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. Pastors, students, and armchair theologians will appreciate this clear, reasoned response to the current crisis.
