Jeffrey A. Stivason speaks about B.B. Warfield’s doctrine of inspiration. In his doctoral dissertation, From Inscrutability to Concursus: Benjamin B. Warfield’s Theological Construction of Inspiration’s Mode from 1880 to 1915., Pastor Stivason highlights the development over time of Warfield’s articulation of inspiration. While Warfield’s influence on the contemporary doctrine of inspiration was monumental, he didn’t arrive at his position all at once but developed it further during a time when the perfection of Scripture was under attack.
