Default Germain Grisez on inerrancy

from the book: Fulfillment in Christ
by Germain Grisez and Russell Shaw

"The assertions of the human writers are the assertions of God; whatever Scripture asserts is without error. This is what the 'inerrancy' of the Bible means."

"This Catholic position on inerrancy must be distinguished from fundamentalism. A fundamentalist rightly holds that what the Bible asserts is true, identifies the propositions he or she personally considers to be asserted, and accepts them as true. A liberal Christian holds that some less important things asserted in the Bible are not true, establishes personally acceptable criteria for distinguishing important propositions from unimportant ones, and believes some things the Bible says while disbelieving others. A Catholic, believing that everything asserted in the Bible is true and that the whole Church cannot err in identifying divine truth, tries to share in the Church's understanding of Scripture and the Church's faith in the divinely revealed truths found there."
