The subject reflected upon in this chapter is the inspiration of Scripture. The authors consider Scripture’s unique claim on its readers and its unique authorship and how this is challenged in the modern age. Particular attention is paid to the school of Princeton and in particular the views of B. B. Warfield on verbal inspiration (plenary inspiration). In the last section of the chapter the view of Karl Barth is reflected upon.
