Overview

The Bible is loaded with thousands of difficult, challenging passages--many of which become obstacles in the development of our faith. These difficulties arise out of differences in culture, language, needs, religious and political organization, not to mention between 2,000 and 3,500 years of separation. Calling attention to these difficulties and sifting out the misconceptions, Edward Andrews defends the inerrancy of the Bible, clarifies apparent contradictions, and arms you with what you need to defend your faith in the Bible.

An Introduction to Bible Difficulties helps you to
Be prepared to make a defense (1 Peter 3:15)
Contend for the faith (Jude 1:3)
Help those who doubt (Jude 1:22-23)

When it comes to defending the Bible from textual, scientific, and historical criticism, Edward D. Andrews has everything you need to begin your study. Written for the eager newcomer to Bible interpretation, textual criticism, and apologetics, these volumes seek to definitively answer any complaint or argument against the Bible's divine inspiration.

    I enjoyed the detailed analysis!

    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!

    Highly Recommended!!!

    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.
