The Authority of Scripture
in the Twenty-First Century

Challenges and Opportunities

Jeff Childers

Kenneth Hawley

Michael Martin






The year 2011 marked the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible.  It also was the year Bart Ehrman published Forged: Writing in the Name of God—Why the Bible's Authors Are Not Who We Think They Are, the latest of many books by Ehrman which seriously questions the traditional Christian view of the inspiration of Scripture.  On July 20, 2011, the Quaker Avenue Church of Christ, in celebration of the former and in response to the latter (along with many other works similar to it), invited three scholars to participate in a conversation about Scripture.  Dr. Jeff Childers of Abilene Christian University and Drs. Michael Martin and Kenneth Hawley of Lubbock Christian University addressed several questions about the nature of Scripture:  How did the Bible as we know it today come to be?  How should believers respond to the current criticism of the Bible such as those by Dr. Ehrman?  Following some initial comments by each, the three participated in a lively, unscripted conversation. The result was an illuminating and inspiring evening as these three brothers shared not only their own scholarly perspectives on the Bible but even more the interactive role of Scripture and community in the development of their personal faith. This book is an edited transcript of the comments of that evening.
