Is the Bible True ... Really?: A Dialogue on Skepticism, Evidence, and Truth by Josh McDowell, Dave Sterrett

With over 40 million books sold, bestselling author Josh McDowell is no stranger to creatively presenting biblical truth. Now, partnering with fellow apologist Dave Sterrett, Josh introduces a new series targeted at the intersection of story and truth.

The Coffee House Chronicles are short, easily devoured novellas aimed at answering prevalent spiritual questions. Each book in the series tackles a long-contested question of the faith, and then answer these questions with truth through relationships and dialogue in each story.

In Is the Bible True, Really?: A Dialogue on Skepticism, Evidence, and Truth, we meet Nick, a college freshman at a state school in Texas. Nick has his spiritual world turned upside-down with what he hears in an introduction to religion class. His questions turn into conversations as he dialogues with professors, friends, and family about the authenticity and authority of the Bible.

The other two books in the series: Who is Jesus, Really? and Did the Resurrection Happen, Really? continue the unfolding story at the college campus and the coffee house down the road.

The Coffee House Chronicles include three must read books for anyone searching for answers to the questions of "Who is Jesus?" "Is the Bible Really True?" and "Did the Resurrection Really Happen?" These books will give Christians the information they need to witness to unbelievers struggling with these questions and will increase their own faith as the truth is revealed about these three major issues of faith. The books are easy to read and written as dialogue between friends. As you read, you get drawn in and feel like you are sitting at a table in a coffee house listening to the character's conversations. The information is presented in a way that is easy to understand and I found myself not wanting to put the books down. I highly recommend all three of these books!

This is a short novel based on the experiences of a college freshman named Nick. Nick was raised in the church and learned a lot of what the Bible teaches. But when confronted with a professor who teaches that the Bible is not based on fact, Nick looses his footing . . . until he meets Jamal. Jamal answers all of Nicks questions and continually quotes historians and factual references that give Nick and the reader solid assurance that the message of the Bible is historical and factual. I, as a truth seeking Christian, was very interested to learn of the thousands of differences between the first century manuscripts and today's Bible that many atheist's and skeptics hold as proof that the Bible is not reliable. But what it comes down to is that over 90% of the differences are in spelling - differences that have no bearing on the message, itself. And there's a lot more. Read it.

"is the Bible true really" is one of josh mcdowells newest books and very hard to put down and can be read in a very short amount of time. it is concerning some students and their struggels with the questians of the Bible this is a remarkable book cause I think alot of people can relate to it cause they often have the same questians as these students do were did the word of God come from and what evidence is there to support the gospels in the end the students find some amazing awnsers to there questians great for a Bible study or a pastors sermon or church library or fine gift for a friend or family member.

This book, along with the rest of the series, provides a very down to Earth view of the spiritual journey of several young (and in some cases, not so young) people. As college students and professors encounter various circumstances in their paths, they begin to wonder more and more about what the truth really is, and what kind of impact it might have on them. The characters, who seem like typical character archetypes at first, quickly grow on the reader and it is easy to become interested in their lives, and the effects that their faith (or lack there of) may have on their decisions and attitudes. In the midst of this storytelling, real world research and information is included in the conversations that the characters have with one another. The information in this book is not only convincing, but it gives context and relevance to it. The book is great for just about any age. Students in junior high can understand the presentation, and full grown adults can learn from the information presented. Highly recommended.

This book deals with the validity of the Scriptures. It is presented in a fresh way so adults and students, who may not pick up an academic book for a reasonable defense of the Scriptures, can read this and come away with substantial answers. It is put together in such a way, through interesting characters like Nick, Jessica and Jamal, that you will not want to put it down. Read it.

In light of the recent attacks (in popular novels, YouTube videos, etc.) against the authenticity, historicity, and accuracy of the Scriptures, this book is greatly needed to equip believers today. While many apologetic writings respond to questions regarding the canon, accuracy of manuscripts, number of copies available, etc., Sterrett and McDowell address other important elements (e.g., the accusation that biblical writers plagiarized from pagan mythology). I highly recommend this book!
