Is The Bible Reliable-building the historical case* A Review
Who is God, and how can we know Him? The Bible claims to be the direct revelation of our Creator. So if the biblical record is true, it is a primary means by which the God of the universe has revealed Himself to mankind. However, if it can be proved false, then the God of whom it speaks is simply one more pretender in the assembly of gods that man has created.
In Is the Bible Reliable? Dr. Stephen Meyer challenges you to examine the historical and archaeological evidence to determine for yourself the veracity and accuracy of biblical Scripture. Is the Bible true? You decide.
Includes two DVDs, each with five 30-minute lessons, and a 96-page, two-color discussion guide. Discussion guide also sold separately.
From the Author
When we were laying out the content for TrueU, we wanted to address the key issues that trip students up on campus and in the classroom. The first was the existence of God, which we dealt with in the first set. The second, just as critical, is the attack upon the reliability of the Scriptures. Many professors use old archaeological positions to cast great doubt upon the Bible. However, as you will find in this second set, new evidence is increasingly making those contrary positions untenable. This is a must, not only for college students, but for all of us. (Dr. Del Tackett )
