The author does a great community service by undertaking some of the issues that have been raised which are addressed as "troubling" to Bible Critics. He also boldly addresses why many of those critics are disingenuous because once the evidence is discovered that resolves the issues they rose, it is minimized. Which serves to expose their motives as an intentional undermining of reliance on the Word of God. This is a great piece of writing and I hope this may become a book series!Was this review helpful?

This is the second book I have read by Andrews, and he does another great job! This one is well worth the cost and more! The approach that Andrews took was great. In the preface, he unloads a bunch of critical statement by Bible critics. In the Introduction, he explains how we should evaluate and weigh if something is true, and he gives you legal terms to evaluate if it is certain or not. In Chapter 1, he spends 30 pages helping us understand why there are Bible difficulties, and offering many principles in helping me to understand better. Chapter explains why we can trust the Bible, chapters 3-4, explain those "so-called" errors and contradictions. Chapters 5-14 take some of the most common Bible difficulties, and really offers great responses. Chapter 15 deals with the common complaint called "the Synoptic Problem." Chapter 16 gives you a little 101 on textual criticism, before showing you in chapter 17 that modern scholars can reestablish the original New Testament. The book closes with a 50 page chapter that really establishes that Moses was the writer of the first five books, and Andrews does "debunk" the Documentary Hypothesis. All in all it was a great read, and he took time to explain difficult subjects, keeping it simple.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
