Reason for the Hope Within 14: Miracles and Christian Theism

12/03/2011

Cover has a great footnote that really shows how the authors approach the subject. “the divine authority of Scripture seems to me not something that one could really establish at all. . . no amount of historical scholarship can establish the inspiration and authority of scripture. . . our warrant in believing the Bible to be the authoritative Word of God owes to the work of the Holy Spirit. Full stop, pretty much” (p. 370n15).

Bang. Even cover admits this, as a Christian. How telling. He relies on the Holy Spirit to found his belief in scripture, and probably his belief in other areas as well. That makes his attempt to convince others apparently useless, unless the Holy Spirit descends upon them.
