A Defense Of Biblical Infallibility. By Clark H. Pinnock. Philadelphia: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Company, 1967. 32 pp. Paper, $ .75.

This forthright defense of Biblical infallibility, inerrancy, and authority will be a mine of pertinent information to students studying this approach to the Scripture. The argument is postulated on the premise that only an infallible and inerrant autograph is in keeping with the infinite perfections of God and, second, that only this point of view can convey truth which is incontestable. In contrast to the weakened doctrine of infallibility advanced by some evangelicals who hesitate to affirm inerrancy, the author not only supports inerrancy from argument, but quotes such men as Irenaus, Augustine, Luther, Calvin, and Wesley in support of the argument that this has been the doctrine of the orthodox church from the beginning. The author, a native of Canada and a Ph.D. graduate of the University of Manchester, currently is serving as associate professor of theology in systematic theology and apologetics at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and is an effective conservative voice in the Southern Baptist Church.

The book is popularly written. It has a devotional flavor. The style is simple and clear and flowing, reflecting the author’s training in English and his gift for expression. It is not, however, a superfiicial study of the theme. It provides a solid basis for thorough

personal study. It will prove helpful for young people who want to know how and why “God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten Son.”

This reverent and imaginative study of the life of Christ in the tragic hours leading up to His crucifixion and the triumph of the resurrection appearances which followed, is a rich devotional study which accepts fully the authority and accuracy of the Scriptural accounts. The author is the bishop coadjutor in the Sydney diocese of the Anglican Church in Australia. Written in the form...
