Overview

Why I Should Trust the Bible? by A. Trevor Sutton

Claim: The Bible is merely a mythological story similar to Homer's Odyssey.

Claim: The Bible is clearly biased toward men. It was written by men and primarily for men.

Claim: The Gospels disagree on even the most basic events in the life of Jesus.

The Bible has a lot of competition when it comes to where people put their trust. The Gnostic Gospels, The Book of Mormon, even Shakespeare are often held up as being more trustworthy than the Holy Scriptures. But all these other texts come up lacking when compared to the Bible. By taking the extremely rigorous standards that have been used to evaluate the Bible and using them to evaluate other texts, Why Should I Trust the Bible? shows how Scripture commands an exceptional amount of trust that no other text in history can match.
