*Please note that this article is not critiquing inerrancy as a whole, but rather a specific form of it - we'll call it hyper-inerrancy. Hyper-inerrancy is often found in fundamentalism and in many with a lay understanding of what inerrancy means, and who aren't aware of its implications. This is an inerrancy of tokens rather than of types. For a more detailed discussion of that, you can check out this article from Stand to Reason. I think identifying and eliminating that type of understanding of inerrancy is vital for Christian intellectual integrity and apologetics.
The idea of inerrancy has honestly been a struggle for me over the past few years. Ironically, that struggle started as I delved more into apologetics. There are two key points of struggle for me in regard to inerrancy: the autographs and the circumscription.
