1. Railey, James Howard. Views on the inerrancy of the Bible in American evangelical theology .

Degree: 2000, University of South Africa

One of the distinguishing marks of American Evangelicalism is a commitment to the Bible as the only authority for faith and practice. A question often debated is whether the Bible should be viewed as inerrant, and if so, how the concept of inerrancy should be understood. This study suggests that the concept of inerrancy should be maintained, but that the concept must be understood in accordance with the way in which the biblical materials present the concepts of truth and its opposite. The value of the doctrine of inerrancy must be found in a better understanding not only of the didactic portions but also of the phenomena ofthe biblical materials. The first chapter of this study looks at nature American Evangelicalism and considers the historical development of the doctrine of the inerrancy of the Bible. The next three chapters consider in turn each of three divisions within American Evangelicalism about the understanding and usage of the doctrine of inerrancy: Complete Inerrancy, Conditional Inerrancy, and Limited Inerrancy. Complete Inerrancy is the most rigid of the three, maintaining that in the original writings of the Bible there were no errors, neither in spiritual nor in secular matters. Conditional Inerrancy conditions the understanding of inerrancy by the intent and purpose for the Bible as understood from the phenomena ofthe texts. The focus is shifted from the autographs of the Scripture to the texts which the contemporary person has to read and study. Limited Inerrancy limits the usage both of the term and of the concept inerrant in relation to the Bible, preferring the descriptor infallible, arguing that neither in the original writings nor in the present texts of the Bible is inerrancy to be found. There are errors in the texts, but they do not take away from the ability of the Bible to accomplish its divine purpose ofbringing people into contact with the Redeemer God. The last chapter draws from the analysis of the arguments within American Evangelicalism material needed to construct a redefined concept of inerrancy which maintains its importance.

2. Garros, Tiago Valentim. Ciência, bíblia e teologia: Darwin e o movimento evangélico.

Degree: 2018, Escola Superior de Teologica

353 p.

This work analyzes the historical relations between the Christian religion and science, with special emphasis on evangelical Protestantism and its troubled relationship with Charles Darwin’s evolutionary biology. In the first part we make a historical survey of the relationship between science and religion from the scientific revolution to the publication of "The Origin of Species", highlighting its locus in the context of English Natural Theology and its reception among evangelicals at the time. In the second part, we characterize the evangelical movement in regard to its distinctive attributes and historical emphases, especially highlighting its philosophical and epistemological assumptions in Baconian inductive empiricism and in Scottish Common Sense Realism. We then trace a historical overview of its relationship with the fundamentalist movement and its attempt of renewal through Fuller Seminary’s lead, until its configuration in Latin America. The third part analyzes the creationist movement as a synthesis of the evangelical way of reading and interpreting the Bible, anchored in its foundationalist epistemology based on the Doctrine of the Inerrancy of Scripture. From here, we point out the problems of the popular formulation of inerrancy, proposing a reformulation of the principle through contemporary examples that echo the example of the architect of the concept in the 19th Century: B.B. Warfield (1851-1921). This reformulation is anchored in the Doctrine of the Incarnation, which we claim to provide a fully satisfactory structure for a solid Doctrine of Scripture and for better evangelical relationships with the historical-critical method of interpretation of the Bible, and consequently with evolutionary science.

Este trabalho analisa as relações históricas entre a religião cristã e a ciência, com especial ênfase no protestantismo evangélico e sua conturbada relação com a biologia evolutiva de Charles Darwin. Na primeira parte é feito um apanhado histórico das relações ciência e religião desde a revolução científica até a publicação de “A Origem das Espécies”, ressaltando o seu locus no contexto da Teologia Natural Inglesa e sua recepção junto aos evangélicos da época. Na segunda parte, caracteriza-se o movimento evangélico quanto aos seus atributos distintivos e ênfases históricas, destacando-se especialmente seus pressupostos filosóficos e epistemológicos no empirismo indutivo baconiano e no Realismo do Senso Comum Escocês. Traça-se um panorama histórico de sua relação com o movimento fundamentalista e sua tentativa de renovação, até sua configuração na América Latina. Na terceira parte, analisa-se o movimento criacionista como uma síntese da maneira evangélica de se ler e interpretar a Bíblia, ancorada em sua base filosófica fundacionalista baseada na doutrina da inerrância das Escrituras. A partir daí…

3. Oldfield, Jeffery S. The word became text and dwells among us.

Degree: PhD, 2008, University of St Andrews

In 1978 a group of evangelical philosophers and theologians held a meeting to decide what the definitive statement on the doctrine of inerrancy would be. Drawing on the thought of B.B. Warfield and others this group came up with a statement comprising of a short statement, nineteen articles including both statements of affirmation and denial, as well as, an exposition of these articles. Taken in its entirety, this statement is intended to be the Evangelical statement determining all subsequent information about the doctrine of inerrancy. Leading evangelicals, including Carl F.H. Henry signed this document in order to establish a consensus on what one meant when using the term inerrancy. Almost three decades later this term is still used with a sense of confusion and the doctrine is no less controversial. In fact, it still is responsible for the division of departments in many evangelical institutions of higher education in North America. The following thesis hopes to help loosen this doctrine from its theological ‘stronghold’ and place it in a position where it will be less likely to cause division amongst evangelicals. By examining the thought of both B.B. Warfield, who helped create the doctrine, and Carl F.H. Henry, who played a contemporary role in the formation of the Chicago Statement and who might rightly be considered the evangelical theologian of the twentieth century, this thesis brings to light certain presuppositions of the doctrine of inerrancy that allow it take a position that undergirds other theological doctrines. By identifying the nature of truth and authority as the main tenants of the inerrantist position, the thesis examines these terms in light of the thought of both Warfield and Henry. Their thought is found to be remarkably similar to certain principles and concerns raised by Enlightenment philosophers and it is concluded that the understandings of truth and authority presupposed by the doctrine of inerrancy ultimately are biased by Enlightenment philosophy and so are an inadequate representation of the terms as used in Scripture and tradition. The thesis suggests that an adequate understanding of truth would be primarily Christological in nature and, therefore, a larger category than the one presupposed by the doctrine of inerrancy. Also, an adequate understanding of authority would presuppose the contemporary work of the Holy Spirit, which again makes for a much larger pneumatological category than the one presupposed by the doctrine of inerrancy as it is currently defined. Enlarging these categories in no way necessitates the denial of inerrancy altogether. Rather it removes the doctrine of inerrancy from its theological pedestal and places it amongst other beliefs that might support the truth and authority of Scripture but by no means establish them. The concluding chapter ends with a statement of what this new doctrine of inerrancy might look like.
