Running Head: The Inspiration and Inerrancy of the Bible The Bible was Inspired by God Robert Surface Student # L23603038 Liberty University The Bible is the authoritative source of God’s Word to two hundred and forty seven million people throughout the United States who claim to be Christians. However, to accept the Bible as authoritative we must also accept the answers to more general questions in relationship to the Bible.

Martin Oderinde Religion 1310:39 September 12, 2012 Christian Scriptures Essay In Placher's analytical essay "Is the Bible True?" he challenges the view of biblical authority that is used by many American Protestants which he defined as "biblical literalism."

Theology of mission, however, provides the rails upon which the train should ride.” These rails can be seen in other areas of Biblical study and areas of Christian life.
