Inerrancy Summit 2015

I’ve been to nearly a decade worth’s of Shepherd’s Conference and this one was definitely the best personally.  I really enjoyed the Inerrancy Summit.

Here are the videos!

There are some more videos they haven’t had it up yet but I will put it up as soon as they make them available.

Enjoy!

Note: The following are rough notes from the conference.

Mark Dever Shepherds conference

We sometime need to unpack what it means when we say that the bible is true?

Issue: translation, transmission, truth content (teaching)

We want to get to the issue of its teaching

4 questions to help understand God’s Word:

1.) What is God’s Word?

2.) What is God’s word like?

  • True (v.142)
    Good (v.68)
    Ancient (v.152)
    Unchanging (v.160)

Note God’s word is like this because He is like this

To attack the word of God is to attack God

3.) What does God’s word does?
Studying God’s word should not make us morally indifferent
Sir us to holiness? (V.102)
Note if Jesus use the Scripture in temptation why would we think we need it less than Jesus?
Rejoice (v.65)
Understanding (v.105)
Answering prayers (v.66)
Give life!

If God is speaking why would we not read it?

4.) How do we respond?
Obey
Love it (v.148)
Meditate
Trust it (v.42)
Fear (v.120)

This passage is about: Jesus! (Listen to the sermon when it is out and the many verses in Psalm 119 that only Christ could have fulfilled.

Inerrancy Summit 2015

The Inerrancy Summit had some recommended books to help those attending the conference pick out what they want from the bookstore.  I thought I share my reviews of some of those books along with my own recommendations concerning books not only with Inerrancy but Scripture in General.

Can I Really Trust the Bible? by Barry Cooper

Can I Really Trust the Bible Cooper

Purchase:  Amazon

Thoughts: If you are attending the conference you would already have this as part of your ten free books.  However this book is worth purchasing as gifts for others especially young believers.  Cooper’s short book shows an awareness of Presuppositional apologetics.

My Further Review

 

Taking God at His Word by Kevin DeYoung

18475501

 

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

Thoughts: Like what Ligon Duncan said in his message, one should be informed by what the Word of God says about itself first and then understanding Scripture’s phenomena and not the other way around.  What does God’s Word says about itself?  Check out DeYoung’s exposition!

My Further Review

 

The Doctrine of the Knowledge of God by John M. Frame

The Doctrine of the Knowledge of God John Frame cover

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

Thoughts: The doctrine of Inerrancy is often rejected because of other surrounding issues such as a bad doctrine of God’s revelation (for instance, due to a bad philosophy of language, knowledge, etc), bad philosophy and problematic epistemology.  John Frame’s biblically driven book towards the knowledge of God is very helpful!  I would also recommend John Frame’s Doctrine of the Word of God but I think it’s best to begin here.

My Further Review

 

Inerrancy and Worldview by Vern Poythress

InerrancyAndWorldview

 

Purchase: Amazon

Thoughts: Very helpful in evaluating different worldviews that often is the undercurrent in people’s reasons for having problems with Bible.

Further Review is forthcoming!
