"When one has abandoned the high doctrine of the infallibility of Scripture and no longer believes Scripture to be reliable in its claims and assertions, then the quest for the genuine, literal sense of Scripture, is no longer so important. For if there are errors in Scripture, then the interpreter will wish somehow to avoid the implications of the literal sense of Scripture and find a 'new' meaning which will be more congenial to his world view or more 'relevant' to his day" [pg. 166]
