Because scholars have tended to use the term in different ways, biblical theology has been notoriously difficult to define. Although most speak of biblical theology as a particular method or emphasis within biblical studies, some scholars have also used the term in reference to its distinctive content.

Clark H. Pinnock (1937--2010) was Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology at McMaster Divinity College, and author of books such as Reason Enough: A Case for the Christian Faith,Set forth your case;: Studies in Christian apologetics,A Wideness in God's Mercy: The Finality Of Jesus Christ In A World Of Religions,The Openness of God,Most Moved Mover: A Theology of God's Openness,The Grace of God and the Will of Man, etc.

Robert Reymond wrote in the Editor's Preface to this 1967 book, "In this monograph Dr. Pinnock perceives the central problem of the twentieth century theology to be epistemological in nature and forthrightly faces the question of Biblical authority. He defends the inspiration and authority of the Bible, insisting that the authority of the Bible is dependent upon its divine inspiration and consequent inerrancy... Liberal and Neo-orthodox theologians have long insisted... that Orthodoxy's affirmation of infallible autographs is irrelevant to the contemporary debate since no living person has them or has seen them... Dr. Pinnock unhesitatingly answers in the negative and gives his reasons for such a reply." (Pg. v)

Pinnock states, "The Bible in its entirety is God's written Word to man, free of error in its original autographs, wholly reliable in history and doctrine. Its divine inspiration has rendered the Book 'infallible' (incapable of teaching deception) and 'inerrant' (not liable to prove false or mistaken). Its inspiration is 'plenary' (extending to all parts alike), 'verbal' (including the actual language form), and 'confluent' (product of two free agents, human and divine). Inspiration involves infallibility as an essential property, and infallibility in turn implies inerrancy. This threefold designation of Scripture is implicit in the basic thesis of Biblical authority." (Pg. 1)

He argues, "It is of greatest theological and practical importance to insist on the infallibility of the autographic Scriptures. Just as no one has seen the infallible originals, no one has seen the fallible originals either. The whole question comes down to what Scripture is. Inspiration refers to the spoken-written words of men moved by the Spirit, not to the production of scribal copies from them." (Pg. 15)

He concludes on the note, "Standing outside the umbrella of Scripture is not a privilege of Christian freedom; it is the fool's paradise of rationalism. For it does not place one in the clearer light of direct revelation, but in the inky murky blackness of no revelation at all. This darkness in the end reduces the whole universe to an inhuman machine without personal origins, and condemns human life to tragic futility." (Pg. 32)

Pinnock, of course, changed his theological directions substantially since this book was written; notably, in The Scripture Principle, he abandoned the notion of biblical infallibility. Stiil, this early book from his uncontroversially "orthodox" period (when this book was cited as a key resource in Josh McDowell's Evidence that Demands a Verdict: Historical Evidence for the Christian Faith) will be of interest to Christians studying apologetics, or biblical infallibility.
Freaky Hook
Clark Pinnock has been for the past generation one of the leading evangelical theologians, particularly when it comes to academic/philosophical theology. The more Evangelical/Fundamentalist side of Christianity has had a traditional suspicion (if not outright disdain) for theology of systematic and philosophical types; Pinnock was for some time a fairly rare exception.
Pinnock, a seminary professor at Baptist seminaries, wrote this text in the early 1970s. As the title indicates, Pinnock believed in a strong sense of inerrancy in the scriptures, arguing that this was the only view consistent with the nature of God. The scriptures must be perfect just as God is perfect and just as Jesus is perfect - any imperfections must be accounted to our inabilities as human beings to understand. This inerrant scripture gives rise to incontestable truth - of course, much depends upon the accuracy of one's interpretation, and while arguing for a realistic and reasonable sense of interpretation, Pinnock falls victim to looking for universal principles of interpretation deriving from a particular contextual situation.
Infallibility is not an option, according to Pinnock, but rather is required by scripture itself. Pinnock recounts various statements (scripture is `God-breathed' - 2 Timothy 3:16, for example) interpreting these in combination as meaning infallibility. Pinnock then argues for a plain-and-simple form of interpretation, saying that the most likely interpretation is the correct one, rather than relying on issues of looking `behind the text' or for deeper intentions. The problem here, of course (and one Pinnock returns to in later writings) is that `obvious' isn't always obvious, particularly to people of different cultures, backgrounds, or other variations that give rise to differences of thought.
It perhaps goes without saying that Pinnock's brand of Evangelicalism emphasised the notion of sola scriptura - by scripture alone, setting itself apart from traditions of ecclesial bodies or from academia. One of the problems with this is that sola scriptura is never required by the scripture itself (indeed, there are examples to the contrary); another problem is that sola scriptura is itself a tradition - those who want no tradition but scripture don't realise they themselves are participating in a tradition.
Of late, due to the change in Pinnock's views, some Evangelicals have accused Pinnock of having deserted their form of Christianity, and of ignoring the Bible. Pinnock continues to place himself within the Evangelical camp, and certain continues to engage the Bible as the primary source of theology. Though Pinnock's mind has changed with regard to the absolute inerrancy of scripture, this is a school of thought still primary in many denominations and held by many individuals. Thus, this text, which informs them, is still worth reading, even moreso when coupled with Pinnock's later writings.
