Over at the BioLogos Forum, Peter Enns is involved in a very lengthy series of intricately looking at both statements known as the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy (download a PDF of the statement here) and the Chicago Statement on Biblical Hermeneutics (download a PDF of the statement here).
Of course, knowing BioLogos’ specific focus on how our Christian faith and science come together, Enns is looking at how these two statements have bearings on the discussion about faith and science, or how these statements could impede such dialogue.
Over the past couple of years, I have really begun to rethink my understanding and approach to Scripture. At some point, I would love to do some more extensive reading, writing and engagimg with what might be the more normal evangelical approach to Scripture – the nature of Scripture, the nature of God-breathed (theopneustos), the concept of inerrancy, and even looking at the 2 Chicago Statement’s. Such will be a large task, no doubt. But I sense the typical evangelical approach might need some rethinking.
Enns’ series at BioLogos is not nearly finished, I suppose. But he has already posted 10 articles thus far. Here is the link to article 1, and then to continue reading the series, look on the right-hand side of the website under ‘More from this Series’. The article listed first in order is the most recent article. So to move on to part 2 in this series, click on the next to last article, and so on.
