Synopsis: In Inerrancy and the Spiritual Formation of Younger Evangelicals, readers are urged to consider their pastoral responsibilities toward students. Evangelical leaders and teachers, in particular, should be more sensitive to the fact that not all younger evangelicals are convinced of the Bible's inerrancy. Some are earnestly searching for an orthodox alternative but, in the process, becoming spiritually unravelled. As responsible shepherds of God's people, evangelical leaders must better understand the negative effect of presenting inerrancy as a doctrine crucial for faith.

From the Back Cover: "Carlos Bovell has written a thoughtful book on the challenges, both intellectual and spiritual, faced by a new generation of evangelicals as they engage the question of inerrancy. While one possibility would be to simply abandon this doctrine, another course of action is preferable: to subject this important idea to critical scrutiny with the intention of reconstructing it for the contemporary setting. I believe that this is an important task and that Bovell's work deserves careful attention from those of us who continue to affirm this doctrine. We ignore these questions at our peril."--John R. Franke, Professor of Theology, Biblical Seminary

"Here are the 'recognitions' of a young evangelical scholar whose spiritual formation was stifled, not to say arrested, because he has been led to believe that the only acceptably orthodox way was a belief in biblical inerrancy. The author argues that the dogma of inerrancy left him woefully unprepared for engagement with modernist and postmodern biblical scholarship and plunged him into a fundamental spiritual crisis. This book should be a welcome read for anyone who, like the author, can no longer make sense of the evangelical inerrancy credo."--James H. Olthuis, Emeritus Professor of Philosophical Theology, Institute for Christian Studies, Toronto

"Bovell knows the evangelical world inside out, and speaks on behalf of younger evangelicals, who cannot, or do not wish to, reconcile themselves to the doctrine of inerrancy. He calls biblical teachers to account, and campaigns for candour in facing up to the unsoundness of the doctrine. His argument is both scholarly and personally engaging, and should be read by students and tutors alike, especially those involved in ministerial training."--Rev. Dr. Harriet A. Harris, University of Oxford, author of Fundamentalism and Evangelicals

"Carlos Bovell has exposed one of the guilty secrets of the Evangelical Tradition, that is, its ironic ability to provoke theological and spiritual rebellion in its own ranks. Those who want to arrest this tragic development should begin by reading this book and facing squarely the challenge it presents."--William J. Abraham, Albert Cook Outler Professor of Wesley Studies, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
