  1. Peter Enns does not “question the validity of Scripture.” Perhaps you should read his work and/or get your facts straight before you leave comments on blogs.

    Thank you.

  2. My apologies if I misunderstood. I was going by the description below, which implies to me that Enns was saying that not all the bible was written under divine authority, but that humans wrote their own contributions without divine inspiration. There seemed to be something disagreeable about the book if they dismissed him.

    “This study from Peter Enns is an important reconsideration of evangelical perspectives on scriptural authority, particularly in light of recent Old Testament scholarship
    Enns looks at three broad issues raised by biblical scholars that seem to threaten traditional views of Scripture:
    • Parallels with ancient Near Eastern literature that have been used to question Scripture’s uniqueness
    • Theological diversity in the Old Testament that has been used to question Scripture’s trustworthiness
    • Unusual uses of the Old Testament by New Testament writers that have been used to question Scripture’s authority
    Enns concludes by offering an incarnational model of Scripture–one that recognizes and affirms both the divine and human aspects of the Bible”
