Divine Command – The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy

This was the statement that launched the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy, an interdenominational joint effort by hundreds of evangelical scholars and leaders to defend biblical inerrancy against the trend toward liberal and neo-orthodox conceptions of Scripture.

 It was signed by nearly 300 noted evangelical scholars, including Boice, Norman L Geisler, John Gerstner, Carl FH Henry, Kenneth Kantzer, Harold Lindsell, John Warwick Montgomery, Roger Nicole, JI Packer, Robert Preus, Earl Radmacher, Francis Schaeffer, RC Sproul, and John Wenham.

The ICBI disbanded in 1988, its work complete. The Council ultimately produced three major statements: this one on biblical inerrancy in 1978, one on biblical hermeneutics in 1982, and one on biblical application in 1986.
