For the Sake of Our Salvation features an all-star lineup tackling one of the most controversial and important subjects in biblical scholarship—the inspiration and truth of Sacred Scripture. What does it mean to say that Scripture is the Word of God? Are there errors in Scripture? These are some of the questions addressed in important new works by Scott Hahn, Brant Pitre, Pablo Gadenz, Michael Waldstein, John Betz, and Germain Grisez. The widespread erosion in the assumption that Scripture is the true Word of God forms the broader context for the articles and studies in this volume. The work presented in these pages is no ivory tower exercise. It is no exaggeration to say that at stake in this discussion is the future of the identity of the Church and the mission of the Word Incarnate. If the Scriptures cannot be trusted to communicate the truth about God and his saving message, if they do not bring us to the encounter with the living God who speaks his Word, then it must be asked: what is the meaning and purpose of the Church?
