For those of you who are interested a podcast interview can be found here:
Thanks for posting that Robin! I just finished listening to it and it was great so I’ve made this a “Sticky” topic.
The interview was done by Chris (aka Theopologetics on this forum) from Rethinking Hell and covers a bit of Robin’s background before focusing on EU, particularly in relation to EC (Evangelical Conditionalism, aka Annihilationism).
Can’t help but be jealous!
Does Parry believe in Biblical inerrancy?
I seem to recall him taking a position on it similar to mine: he agrees with the Chicago Inerrancy Statement about the authoritative importance of scripture, and about all the qualifications they acknowledged to inerrancy, but consequently doesn’t like to call the result “inerrancy”.
But maybe he’ll drop a line here and clarify that. I could be mis-remembering (or projecting).
I enjoyed the discussion and hope to hear more.
On his site, Robin cites James Goetz: (Robin does not comment on it)
“I mostly agree with (Roger) Olson. I call my view doctrinal inerrancy; that is, all of the teachings in the Bible are true. And I strongly reject the Holy Spirit and ancient Mediterranean Bible authors wrote with modern standards of history.”
In 2009 Robin posted this (it may not be his current position):

And here is Olson’s (partial) take on inerrrancy:
