At the beginning of this course I thought that the Bible had to be inerrant in order to be true.

This cannot be true though because some of the scientific and historical claims within in the Bible have been proven to be inaccurate.…

    This essay looks to discuss my assumption that the best interpretation of a work of literature is the author’s intention for the work, as it is the basis for the work. This paper criticises this assumption as it does not allow for a sufficient understanding of literature and since there is no way to prove that there is a best interpretation.
