This is the book I use to help those who have been damaged by fundamentalism. It is a small but very clear book about the (flimsy) case for Biblical inerrency and why we as Christians should take our Scriptures seriously, but not unthinkingly. This is the later, second edition.
This text is designed for those who feel uncertain and discouraged in the face of the confidence of fundamentalist tendencies. The lectures here are written with an emphasis on Christian truth and a Christian way of life.
