Last summer we did a short series of teachings on the bible–what it is, how it can be both God’s word and written by humans, and how we know we can trust it. If we were at college, we’d call this series “The Doctrine of Scripture” (since that’s what it is) and we’d note that these studies cover the topics of Inspiration, Clarity, and Inerrancy. Though lots of people don’t know these words, we’re all surrounded by discussions about how we should think about the bible when we read it: Is it really right to call it “God’s Word”? Can we really understand it? Should we think that it has mistakes in it, or not?
If you’re interested in thinking through those issues again, whether for yourself or for conversations with friends, here are the links to the audio from those studies. (They’ll be permanently on the Audio Page.) Click on a title to download.
