Book Description:

Princeton theologian B. B. Warfield was a watchman on the wall of orthodoxy. His temperament, training, and talent-together with his deep love for Christ and amazing breadth of knowledge-shaped him into the twentieth century's greatest defender of the faith. His writings have been studied with profit for well over a hundred years-a tribute to his clear, careful, cogent, gospel-centered exposition of orthodox Christianity, which he called "the redemptive religion" and which he fearlessly defended.

In The Inspiration and Authority of the Bible, Warfield says that the Bible is "an oracular book . . . the Word of God in such a sense that whatever it says God says" that all its affirmations are "to be esteemed as the utterance of God, of infallible truth and authority." Warfield's incisive scholarship shines in this new and enhanced edition, which has been edited, formatted, and retypeset for modern readers. Its carefully prepared aids include fulsome abstracts at the beginning of each chapter, intelligent headings, smart paragraph breaks, explanatory notes, definitions of obscure terms, discussion questions, recommended reading, complete footnotes and bibliographies, and more.

Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield (1887-1921) was professor of didactic and polemic theology at the Theological Seminary of Princeton.


"Few theologians of the last century can match the biblical faithfulness, theological depth, wide-ranging scholarship, and warm piety of B. B. Warfield. In particular, Warfield's writings on revelation and inspiration set the mark for a Reformed exposition and defense of the doctrine of Scripture. So we may be grateful for this new and enhanced edition of The Inspiration and Authority of the Bible. With full and updated bibliography, helpful editorial notes, and reader-friendly abstracts and study questions, The Inspiration and Authority of the Bible is poised to inform the minds and stir the hearts of a new generation of readers."
--Guy Prentiss Waters, James M. Baird Jr. Professor of New Testament and Academic Dean, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi

"I cannot overstate the timeliness, the thoroughness, the importance of the helpful study guides, and the amazing bibliographies of the volume. What an achievement. Van Til's appendix alone is worth the price of the volume."
--William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary; Associate Professor, Faculté Jean Calvin, Aix-en-Provence, France

"B. B. Warfield's meticulous exegesis of biblical texts in support of systematic theology has had a lifelong impact on my life, both in the example of his careful method of argument and also in the way in which his Inspiration and Authority of the Bible deepened my conviction of the complete divine authorship and unfailing truthfulness of the entire Bible. I highly recommend this new edition of Warfield's work."
--Wayne Grudem, Distinguished Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies, Phoenix Seminary

"This book is the classic trenchant exegetical defense of inerrancy and inspiration. No one who is interested in this topic should leave this book unread."
--G. K. Beale, Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Dallas

"I'm delighted that P&R is doing a new edition of this important work. When I was working out my own view of Scripture, B. B. Warfield, of all human authors, was most persuasive. Great that this can be made available to the next generations. I think P&R's add-ons are wonderful ideas for updating the format and making it more useful."
--John M. Frame, Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy Emeritus, Reformed

"I'm thrilled that P&R is breathing new life into B. B. Warfield's classic book on Scripture, The Inspiration and Authority of the Bible. Every Christian generation needs to digest his robust, careful, and wise analysis of Scripture's conviction that the words of the Bible are the words of God." -Benjamin L. Gladd, Professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Semi-nary, Jackson, Mississippi "B. B. Warfield was one of the first authors I was encouraged to read when I was converted to Christ. He was without peer in his ability to show me the depth and richness of biblical Christianity. Throughout my Christian life, along with Calvin, Warfield is one author that I return to time and time again. He was a tremendous gift to Christ's church, and this new edition will continue that gift for years to come. Thanks to John Hughes for giving us the best of Warfield in a more useful way. No doubt more new Christians will experience what I did because of these enhanced works."
--K. Scott Oliphint, Professor of Apologetics and Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary

"This looks like a superb edition. In the past, I've had students read bits and bobs of essays from these gems, but the style can be off-putting. Many students today find B. B. Warfield's prose to be turgid and difficult to follow. This new edition will make his writings accessible to a new generation. The additional elements, especially SBL/Chicago style, discussion questions, and contemporary works, enhance the relevance of Warfield's enduring achievement. This is a gift to the church. I look forward to seeing it in print."
--Michael S. Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

"Ideas often develop under controversy. As attacks against a unified divinely inspired Bible grew in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Old Princeton theologians such as B. B. Warfield rose to the challenge. Defending, clarifying, and even expanding the Protestant doctrine of Scripture, Warfield devoted meticulous attention to the Bible's witness to itself. For modern Christians, this volume is essential reading on the doctrine of Scripture, providing them with a full and satisfying account of the Bible's divine character and self-attesting witness. John Hughes's additions to the text make this volume even more valuable, promoting easier reading and group study of a modern Christian classic."
--Ryan M. McGraw, Morton H. Smith Professor of Systematic Theology, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary
