In R.C. Sproul’s book, Can I Trust the Bible? he discusses the issue of inspiration and whether it was dictation or whether each writer was allowed to express their own personality/writing style.
He summarizes with this:
“We do not know the process by which inspiration was given. But because of inspiration, no matter how God brought it about, every word of Scripture carries the weight of God’s authority.”
1. Do you agree with him?
2. Can we truly know how it was done?
3. What are your views on this issue?
