In our world today, it is not only non Christians that question the Bible.  There are many churches and religious leaders that pick and choose which parts of the Bible they believe are true.  Everywhere we turn in print, on television, in PUBLIC SCHOOL the Christian faith is being mocked and belittled.  There is untold damage being done in our church and with our young people when we tell them that only certain parts of the Bible are true.  They begin to believe the evolutionary teaching that has been placed before them and begin to reject God's word as reliable and disbelieve the Bible as true history.  Without believing in the authenticity of God and His word, how can we believe in Christ, his sacrifice, and our salvation?  We need to stand firm that the Bible is 100 percent true and the Word of God.

How Do We Know The Bible is True is a series of question and answer essays written by more than a dozen respected defenders of the faith including: Ken Ham, John MacArthur, Terry Mortenson, Jason Lisle, Brian Edwards, Tommy Mitchell, Jobe Martin, Georgia Purdom, Bodie Hodge, and Roger Patterson.  Over 20 relevant issues are covered in the book including:

Is the Bible inerrant and reliable?
Did the resurrection really happen?
Are there contradictions in the Bible?
What is the purpose and meaning of life?
Did miracles really happen?
Was Genesis derived by ancient myths?
How should we interpret the Bible;should Genesis be literal?

We should be able to defend not just what we believe, but why we believe it.  How Do We Know the Bible Is True answers many questions people today are asking (some of which quite honestly had never crossed my mind.)  It does an excellent job thoroughly answering the questions presented and contains footnotes to the sources used to arrive at the answers.  The reading can be a bit dry and on the technical side, and it may be a more challenging read for someone with no biblical knowledge.  Overall it was a fascinating read and one that is very important in understanding and having an answer to questions people are asking today.  

The section that spoke to me the most was Chapter 19 How Can We Stand on Scripture in an Evolution Pushing Culture?  I have been amazed at the amount of church going Christians that do not believe the literal, accurate account of Genesis.  " Evolutionary humanism and its millions of years are perhaps Satan's most effective lie ever, and Christians are not immune to it.  Belief in this lie of evolution continues to have devastating consequences on us individually, our families, our churches, our communities, and our nation."  There is scientific evidence that supports creation that clearly can be seen when we stop believing Satan's lies. 

I received a complimentary copy of How Do We Know the Bible is True from New Leaf Publishing Group for the purpose of writing a fair and honest review.  I received no other compensation.
