What is the state of Evangelical theology in Germany? Since the Enlightenment, theology in Germany has gained an unfavourable reputation for innovation that is very critical of Scripture.

How do I know the Bible is true? There are three things that point to the truthfulness of Scripture: the testimony of Scripture itself, its unity, and the fulfillment of prophecy. Let the article explain these.

The author surveys twenty-five years of development in the discussions within the Evangelical Theological Society on the nature of Scripture as the Word of God. The aspect that stands in the centre of discussions is the inerrancy of Scripture. Areas surveyed include historical developments, philosophy, theology, criticism, archaeology, and hermeneutics.
