In evangelical Christianity, few doctrines are as foundational as the authority of scripture. However, in society at large, the Bible is questioned now more than ever. In response to the accusations and questions of secular culture, the Scripture Project was instituted to reintroduce clarity and confidence in regards to scripture.
The Scripture Project
This project produced a set of advanced essays on the doctrine of Scripture, culminating in the publication of The Enduring Authority of the Christian Scriptures. A group of thirty-eight scholars contributed, writing in the heritage of informed confessionalism on a wide range of topics. The first drafts of the essays were completed when the contributors convened for a private conference before the summer of 2010, during which they worked over one another’s papers. Suitably revised, these papers were compiled and edited by D. A. Carson, then published by Eerdmans in 2016.
According to D. A. Carson, “the list of contributors is impressive. Moreover, they came together when their work was in draft form for an intense week of mutual interaction and criticism, ensuring that the end result is stronger than it would have been without the mutual critique. In short, our aim was to produce a comprehensive volume that would be a touchstone on the subject for the twenty-first century.”
