The revised and expanded edition of the 1998 best seller 7 Reasons Why You Can Trust the Bible by Dr. Erwin Lutzer is a deep-dive into critics of the Bible as ultimate source of Truth and Inspired Word of God. Logic, history, fulfilled prophecies, Christology, science, providence and personal, changed lives, are elaborated to showcase the strength of the Bible and the weaknesses of other beliefs.
Inner structure, and consistency of the Bible makes it impossible to be the human fictional construct. History and archaeological findings support the Biblical places and events. Prophecies of the Bible is to the point, traceable and proven fact, hundreds of years after these have been written down, thereby so fundamentally different from Nostradamus‘s ‘prophecies’, that are open for guessing. A large part is devoted to science, and more specific, Darwinist evolutionism versus the acknowledgement of a Creator. The canon of the Bible is another tough topic which is dealt with in all openness and respect for the books at hand. Lutzer finally rejects the idea of moral through an atheistic point of view, and the accusation that Christianity is evil in nature. A thorough apology for Christianity.
Consider purchasing the accompanying DVD and study guide-ideal for group and individual stody-for an even more in-depth study.
