Overview

     Preeminent among all literature about the big questions of life is  the Holy Bible. Not only does it report human opinions, but it also gives divine insights into all the issues of life. Thus, it gives perspectives and answers available nowhere else. Viewed from this standpoint, the Bible is not some book out of the musty past that has only antiquarian interests for a few with anostalgic bent; but it has vital, contemporary relevance.

     Dr. Vos brings the Bible to life, not only as he recounts the events of biblical history, but as he makes it relevant for the readers of the twenty-first century.

  • What is the New Testament?

  • What does inspiration mean?
  • How does the Bible all fit together?
