Some today are touting “limited inerrancy.” This view is meaningless and places the Bible in the same category as every other book.
Crossway’s Justin Taylor has recently posted some statements from J.I. Packer on inerrancy and hermeneutics. Some Neo-Evangelicals, however, are now claiming these statements can be used to support their view of Scripture. However, this simply is not true.
A group of scholars are now denying the historic evangelical statement of the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy in favor of a Neoevangelical view of limited inerrancy which limits inerrancy to redemptive matters and denies inerrancy of historical and scientific issues. This is what the new “Battle for the Bible” is all about. There are some serious problems with this view.

In only the first few weeks over 1000 have signed the inerrancy petition which says “I affirm that the Bible alone, and in its entirety, is the infallible written Word of God in the original text and is, therefore, inerrant in all that it affirms or denies on whatever topic it addresses.” If you have not signed yet, do so and pass the word on to your friends. With a ground swell of names we can turn the tide together. Niagara Falls is made up of a lot of little drops of water.
