Albert Mohler has a critical review of Michael Licona’s book The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historiographical Approach. While Mohler praises Licona’s masterful defense of the historicity of the resurrection, Mohler takes him to task over his interpretation of Matthew 27:51-54. Mohler argues that Licona’s approach undermines the inerrancy of scripture. Mohler concludes:
Michael Licona is a gifted and courageous defender of the Christian faith, and a careful apologist of Christian truth. Our shared hope must be that he will offer a full correction on this crucial question of the Bible’s full truthfulness and trustworthiness. I will be praying for him with the full knowledge that I have been one who has been gifted and assisted by needed correction. Leaving his argument where it now stands will not only diminish the influence of Michael Licona — it will present those who affirm the inerrancy of the Bible with yet another test of resolve.
