Dr. James White spend several Dividing Line programs responding to Andy Stanley. (usually along with other issues.)
Update: ( I have been busy and added the update on October 14, 2016)
Andy Stanley responded to a lot of the controversy he generated here. (It was good to see a clear statement of Inerrancy from him.)
(Andy still thinks that the Bible does not have authoritative power to change someone’s heart; that is, one has to avoid talking about the Bible as God’s word until much later; after using human methods of seeking to convince people. As Denny Burk points out, he is dividing apologetics from the inherent authority that God’s word has in it. )
Below is some of what Denny Burk wrote. See the full context at the link above.
Stanley’s argument assumes that the Bible’s effectiveness somehow relies on its plausibility to sinners. It assumes that unbelief dissolves the Bible’s authority. But we must simply point out that the Bible is not like other religious books. If the Bible is God’s word, it has an intrinsic power that the Koran does not.
Stanley’s approach functionally divides God’s authority from His word. If the Bible is “God-breathed,” then it bears the authority of God himself (2 Tim. 3:16). When the Bible speaks, God speaks. If the Bible is God’s very own word, then the Bible has a self-authenticating power that breaks through unbelief even before all the apologetic questions are answered. It has a self-authenticating power that cannot be nullified by any argument from skeptics.
We do apologetics because we love our neighbor and because we want to remove stumbling blocks. But we don’t do apologetics because we think the authority of almighty God depends on it. It doesn’t. God’s word can break through to the coldest heart with its very own self-authenticating authority.
