Michael Bird, ETS, and the Inerrancy Issue

Michael Bird has some excellent thoughts on inerrancy which was the topic of this year’s ETS conference.

Inerrancy is not about interpretations, inerrancy is not about methodologies, and the word “inerrancy” should not be elevated to the level of a shibboleth.
