If we believe that Scripture is God's word and that God cannot err, then it follows the Bible is inerrant. But what would have constituted an error in the biblical cultures? What does Scripture testify about itself and the nature of its reliability? Ben Witherington, prolific NT professor at Asbury Seminary, addresses these and related questions, including the formation of the canon, the history of Bible translations, how to choose among the many English-language versions, and basic hermeneutical principles. Almost every reader will disagree at some point, but the vast majority of his positions are compelling and clear. Warmly to be recommended.

Whatever Ben Witherington writes goes to the top of my 'must read' list. His new book doesn't disappoint. It's insightful, creative, provocative, and challenging - in other words, it's pure Ben!
