What does St. Paul mean when he writes in 2 Timothy 3:16 that "all scripture is inspired by God"?  Is there a difference between biblical inspiration and spiritual illumination?  Does biblical inspiration primarily pertain to the text itself, the reader, or the original author?  What is the relationship between biblical inspiration and biblical inerrancy?  

This book examines diverse theories of biblical inspiration as articulated by scholars Abraham Heschel (Jewish), James Burtchaell (Catholic), Bruce Vawter (Catholic), William Abraham (Methodist), Kern Trembath (Episcopalian), and Paul Achtemeier (Presbyterian) in light of the understanding of biblical inspiration as understood by the Catholic Church, most notable in Dei verbum of the Second Vatican Council.Mark J.
