Harold Lindsell (December 22, 1913 – January 15, 1998) was an evangelical Christian author and scholar, and one of the founding members of Fuller Theological Seminary. He is best known for his 1976 book The Battle for the Bible. Lindsell was born in New York City, and obtained degrees at Wheaton College, University of California, Berkeley and New York University.

Calvary Chapel, an association of churches, maintains a number of radio stations around the world and operates many local Calvary Chapel Bible College programs. It presents itself as a "fellowship of churches" in contrast to a denomination, and includes over one thousand congregations worldwide. Churches that affiliate with Calvary Chapel may use the name "Calvary Chapel" but need not do so.

Is the Bible inerrant or not? Author Dr. Harold Lindsell answers in the affirmative-Yes, It Is! Discussing the meaning of special revelation and inspiration, Lindsell shows the Scripture's witness to itself and the historical view of inspiration and its implication. The basic fact is that a view of "limited inerrancy" has crept into evangelical Christianity. The basic problem is that a view of limited inerrancy invariably leads to concessions in matters of faith and practice. The basic need is for the church to be aware of the problem and to articulate her belief in Biblical inerrancy without fear and without compromise. Dr. Harold Lindsell leaves no doubt that the battle has been joined.

I found Harold Lindsell's book to be fascinating looking back at his assessment of the crisis at hand. Considering now what took place in Southern Baptist life after this book was written, Lindsell's writings sound almost prophetic. Lindsell accurately recognizes that once infallibility is abandoned, it opens the doors for all sorts of other departures from the faith (25, 139). One only needs to look at the mainline denominations today and their embrace of sinful practices, inclusivistic views of the Gospel, or feministic approaches to worship to recognize the reality of which Lindsell spoke. He also aptly recognizes that defection from inerrancy tends to begin in the institutions (83, 133). Yet, the fault does not completely lie there. Too many arrive on those campuses "illiterate" on our doctrines making them an easy prey (134). Thus, part of the fault lies in the churches' failure to properly equip their young people. I wonder if that issue has been addressed. As I hear stories about the defection from the faith of students in the religion department in the religion departments of Christian colleges, I fear that the problem that Lindsell addressed still remains in our churches today, and as such the warning of his book still needs to be heard.

Glad to get this

Lindsell does an excellent job of describing how the Conservative Church of the 50's becomes the Liberial Church of today. How the enemies of the conservative Christian Church moved in an applied poison to the views and beliefs of our faith, ruining a strong and vibrant belief system. If you ever wondered how the Church got to where it is today, this is a must read. It's sister book The Bible in the Balance is a worry read as well.

Although a bit dated in current information the thesis and power of this book is not at all hindered and continues to be invaluable. There has been a decline and denial of Biblical authority in mainstream Protestantism in America the last 40 years and to not admit this is placing the church in a weakened position spiritually. Books like this are not written anymore . Other books written on this subject tend to be non-scholarly, non-intellectual or too sensational but not this one. Lucid, terse and filled with facts and logic, this is the one volume for your bookshelf when it comes to reference on the subject of mainstream denominations leaving the inerrant authority position of Scripture in their fellowships and it's ultimate conclusion. Harold Lindsell is insightful and prophetic in his assessment of the situation.

though somewhat dated now, Lindsell's warnings about the "slippery slope" of liberal compromise of Biblical inerrancy were, in their time a classic and very-needed call to arms for Biblical conservatives

This author predicted, with amazing accuracy, the direction that the Christian Church was moving in. His worst fears have been realized as less than 10% of Christians today believe in the inerracy of the Bible.

Pictured with dust cover, but did not come with it. Interesting read. I recommend it. The book came in a timely fashion and in good condiition. I would use this supplier again.
Battle for the Bible is a blueprint for fundamentalists to use in taking over a denomination. It is an important text in understanding the general rise of fundamentalism in America in the last 30 years of the 20th century, particularly the takeover of the Southern Baptist Convention with the subsequent purges of general membership, seminaries, and branches of the convention. Highly recommended for history of the church, fundamentalism, and baptist history.
