Ancient Word, Changing Worlds is the best, clearest, and most reliable historical overview of the doctrine of Scripture for a contemporary audience. As careful historians, Nichols and Brandt show what the church has always believed about the Bible as the Word of God, and also how our understanding of the inspiration, inerrancy, and interpretation of Scripture has grown through the centuries. The authors let scholars and theologians on all sides of the age-old battle for the Bible speak in their own words, giving us the historical context and theological framework we need to accept the Bible's own witness to its beauty, perfection, and divine authority.

Rev. Doyle Peyton5 Stars Out Of 5July 20, 2010Rev. Doyle PeytonI good concise history of the key personalities and writings related to the issue of biblical inspiration and inerrancy. The reader must read the referenced sources (Warfield,eg) for a helpful apologetic. When will evangelicals stop keeping the names and writings of apostate German theologians alive?
