How Do We Know The Bible Is True?

How Do We Know The Bible Is True? If you are at all verbal about your faith (and possibly even if you're not), then I am sure you have heard this question in some form. With how much our modern culture has become accepting of evolutionary ideas, a large amount of Americans no longer believe the Bible really is God's Word. Even, unfortunately, many Christians and church-goers. So how do we answer these people? Can we really KNOW that the Bible is true? YES! And to help us with that, New Leaf Publishing Group recently published a book entitled How Do We Know The Bible Is True? Edited by Ken Ham and Bodie Hodge, this book is compiled in the same manner as the popular (and extremely helpful) Answers series. The 17 authors take common questions about the authority of veracity of the Bible and in just a few short pages, answer any doubts about the subject. Authors include highly respected men such as Ken Ham, John MacArthur, Dr. Jason Lisle, Brian Edwards, and Jobe Martin.

Some of the topics covered include an opening by Ken Ham regarding Biblical Authority and it's relevance to today's churches and culture, Old and New Testament reliability, the physical resurrection of Christ, the Trinity, Miracles, How to interpret the Bible, Why should we believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, Can other religious writings be from God, and how did we get the Bible in English. Each of the topics (including many more that are not listed above), are covered clearly and in detail. This is an excellent book for anyone who has questions themselves, or who would like to be able to answer questions for others.

While many people who question our faith may simply be scoffers, others are sincerely looking for answers. It is so important for us to know the Word of God, and be able to defend it. Thank God for men like Ken Ham, and companies like New Leaf Publishing Group, who are dedicated to offering answers to the seekers, and equipping believers to "give an answer to every man that asketh"!
