Exploring the Basics of the Bible by R. Laird Harris
The Scriptures are God's Word to us. We should read them, study them, meditate on them and, most of all, practice them. But the first step to a truly enriching study of the Bible is understanding the basics behind it. Being familiar with the essentials gives you not only a deeper appreciation for the wonder of God's Word, but a foundation for sharing its truths to others. This introductory book explores important questions that many of us wonder about: Who wrote the Bible? Was it by revelation? By inspiration? Why should I believe in this antiquated book? What about its seeming contradictions and problems? R. Laird Harris answers these concerns and more. He also includes questions to provoke further exploration on your own. And the book concludes with vital chapters on study helps and methods, as well as a list of resources for enrichment. If you're just beginning your quest into God's amazing Word, or want to know more than you already do, Exploring the Basics of the Bible will be an invaluable resource for your journey.
