Overview

Seven Reasons Why You Can Trust the Bible by Erwin W. Lutzer


Can you trust the Bible?

Many answer this question with a staunch No! Critics increasingly attempt to poke holes in the authority of Scripture and deflate faith among believers. But ask Dr. Erwin Lutzer if you can trust the Bible, and he’ll give a resounding Yes!

In this revised and expanded edition of the popular book 7 Reasons Why You Can Trust the Bible, Dr. Lutzer offers seven foundational arguments for the reliability of Scripture. In clear, easy-to-follow language, he explores:

  1. The Bible’s claims about itself
  2. The historical reliability of the Bible
  3. The prophetic predictions of the Bible
  4. The claims of Christ concerning Scripture
  5. The harmony between science and the Bible
  6. The providence of God in preserving Scripture
  7. The power of the Bible to change lives

In the court of truth, the Holy Spirit testifies to the authority of Scripture, and all the evidence lines up. Read 7 Reasons and let your confidence in God’s Word increase.

Finally something written that includes reasons why the theory of evolution is false and that science admits it is false but yet cannot explain our existence. Also, a great explanation why other manuscripts found are not part of the Bible. Very interesting and enlightening reading.

[Note: This book was provided free of charge by Moody Publishers. All thoughts and opinions are my own.] Given the widespread ignorance of scriptures and the savage nature of attacks by theological liberals and secular humanistic opponents of God, this author has sought to add to the writing that exists concerning the reliability of scripture [1] in this appealing and well-organized and honest work. Although frequent readers of apologetic works will find much in here that is echoed in other works, this book expresses the material in a humane way that avoids overstating his case, admitting the necessity of faith, and even openly wrestles with the distinction between Protestants and Catholics over the relative authority of scripture as opposed to the Church. As a result of its approach, this is definitely an appealing apologetic work and it is little surprise that over 150,000 copies of this book are in print, as the book’s front cover humbly proclaims. This revised edition of a best-selling book is one that ought to be appreciated by many who wish to defend and discover the basic validity of the Bible. In terms of its contents, the author straightforwardly discusses the validity and trustworthiness of the Bible through seven distinct lines of argument. Really, the book is not about 7 reasons so much as seven connected families of reasons: the Bible’s internal evidence, historical reliability, prophetic validity, claims of Christ, harmony between science (properly applied) and the Bible, the divine providence in the preservation of scripture, and the power of the Bible to change lives. Throughout the the book the author uses a range of evidence from a brief discussion of intelligent design and a discussion from anecdotal evidence about the conversion of former enemies of God into Bible believers to demonstrate the legitimacy of a belief in the Bible. Throughout, though, the author gives an honest admission of the fact that while one can prove the validity of scripture through means of reason and evidence–plenty of which exists in terms of archaeology and the continual supporting evidence for the belief in human depravity–there are plenty of people who demand an impossible standard for God’s word. While the Bible’s validity can be proved beyond a reasonable doubt, it cannot be proved beyond unreasonable ones for those who have hardened their hearts and minds against testimony on its behalf. Nevertheless, for either fair-minded doubters (to whom the book’s closing section is directly addressed) or believers in the Bible, this book is one that has pleased a large audience of readers and is likely to please many more in the future. The book is aimed primarily at the sort of doubts that believers are likely to face given the biases present in contemporary culture hostile to God’s ways. It is, in short, a book designed to ramp up the intellectual confidence of believers in the face of the slanders and libels put against the Bible by self-professed contemporary scholars, some of whom this book deals with in an elegant but decisive fashion. It should be noted, though, that a great deal of struggle with God comes as a result of the difficulties of life, and while this book does discuss the question of free will, it should be noted that this book does not attempt a detailed justification of the existence of evil in this world or the reasons for the suffering of humanity, but rather seeks to give a positive defense of scripture based

Erwin Lutzer always seems to find ways to make the bible understandable with references to current times.
