Probably the most often used strategy to attempt to impugn the integrity and legitimacy of the Bible as Gods inerrant word is to claim that the Bible is full of errors. Aggressive atheists’ have numerous websites and books full of claims and passages cited to make their case. One of the problems is that there are a few errors (nowhere near as many as the skeptics claim); I say problems because most Christians do not understand the scholarship or facts on this issue.
Christianity teaches that the Bible is inerrant (without error) in the original manuscripts (autographs). We do not have the original. We have thousands of copies over hundreds of years and errors have crept in.
The journal, “Does the Bible Err?” presents chapters responding to the claims of historical errors, scientific errors, contradictions, and promotion of immorality. This journal helps Christians move beyond just knowing what they believe, to knowing why we believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible and inerrant revelation from God.
