After the example of Zwingli though his approach to the nexus between Word and Spirit has problems of its own, the doxological use, not just of inerrancy language, but of other forms of "love-language" for scripture is the sign of a healthy theology.
It is seems to me that descriptive theological discourse is, at its best, doxological.
In the tradition of the church before rationalism seeped into the groundwater of the debate, inerrancy language was doxological in nature.
The argument is conducted through an analysis and rejection of the Derridean interpretation of this work, that is, Pickstock contends against Derrida that Plato assumed that language was primarily doxological in character, ‘ultimately concerned with praise of the divine’21, and therefore liturgical.
Her argument is that Plato operated with a doxological view of language, and that a recovery of this is essential for the health of Christian society.
It is not just that credal material is absorbed into liturgy; the credal material itself has a strongly doxological character, most evident perhaps in the 341 Antiochene text but by no means absent from the 325 statement of faith, which has a slightly perfunctory allusion to the biblical titles of the Logos.

The first is that the theological and doxological claims against it, once held with unanimity, are not even discussed by cremation proponents.
