The Unerring Word of God

By Lee Gatiss. The Gospel Magazine, September – October, 2010, pp.152-154.
In the context of the current debate over "inerrancy", which is apparently a nineteenth century invention, this article looks at how Evangelicals spoke about this issue in the eighteenth century. It shows how George Whitefield, Augustus Toplady, John Newton and others spoke of the Bible as "God's unerring word". It suggests possible backgrounds for this in a 17th century Psalter and in the Book of Common Prayer and Thirty-nine Articles of the Church of England. It encourages evangelicals today to again speak and think of the word of God as "unerring".
