The Inspiration of Scripture
The Inspiration of Scripture: Problems and Proposals,
Paul J Achtemeier, Westminster/John Knox, 1980, page 125

not primarily concerned with historical fact so much as they are concerned with the significance of those past events for the present, and the promise they hold for the future
means that the past has great but not conclusive importance.
