Every pastor will on occasion be forced to define and defend his convictions about the nature of the inspiration of Scripture. What do we mean by “inspired”? In another theological novel (the 5th) of the ministry of Ira Pointer, not only is doctrine taught through a fascinating story, but the need to stand for truth in a Christ-like manner comes through, in this controversy which hotly rages over, what precisely is the Bible?
After several years without a theological pursuit, Pastor Ira Pointer sets off to seminary, only to find himself enmeshed once again in unique circumstances, which force him to define and defend his convictions concerning the nature of the inspiration of the Bible. In the unfolding of the plot, surprises confront him from the first day of class, to the solving of the mystery of the identity of "the strawman," while his convictions are built and strengthened towards the defending of the faith.
