An excellent book! Feb 11, 2010
I have always loved Rev. Lutzer's books on various subjects! After I had read this book, I felt I just went through an apologetics class! His writing was clear and right to the points!
Trusting Bible's Reasonable Apr 7, 2006
This book addresses questions such as whether the Bible can be proved, whether Jesus has been misquoted and gospels lost and wrongly excluded, whether the Bible is all a matter of interpretation and man's thoughts, and so on. Lutzer gives internal and external evidences supporting the Bible, explaining how the Bible came to be, why the apocrphyal writings were rejected, how science and archaeology support the Bible, and how it's self-authenticating thru prophecy. I recommend this book for two types of Christians: (1) those who believe in the person and work of Christ but who are hesitant to believe in the inerrancy and reliability of the Bible, and (2) those who already trust both Christ and the Bible but want to be better equipped to respond to give an answer to inquiring minds. This book might also be of interest to nonbelievers for whom skepticism about the Bible is a preliminary obstacle to coming to Christ. Lutzer in this book, as in his others, has a way of avoiding clutter, keeping it simple, so if a more detailed treatment is desired, I'd recommend the textbook 'A General Introduction to the Bible' by Norman L. Geisler and William E. Nix.
