In his essay “Evangelical Self-Identity and the Doctrine of Biblical Inerrancy” Professor John Woodbridge argues that “biblical inerrancy has been a church doctrine or Augustinian central teaching of the Western Christian churches, including evangelical Protestant churches” and seeks to refute the revisionist historiography that says  biblical inerrancy is “neither an evangelical doctrine nor a central teaching of the Western Christian churches.”

He concludes: “The doctrine of biblical inerrancy is no late imaginative creation of A. A. Hodge and B. B. Warfield in 1881 or of twentieth-century American fundamentalism. Rather, it is an essential evangelical belief based upon a biblical warrant. It resides squarely within the Augustinian tradition regarding the Bible’s truthfulness. Both Roman Catholics and the Protestant Reformers affirmed the church doctrine.”
