It was the first book to ever be printed. It remains one of the most popular of all time, with whole societies of people professing to live their lives according to its pages – but can the Bible actually be trusted? Does it have any substance or is it just some nice ideas? Isn’t it full of contradictions, and can it really have anything to say in the 21st century? The fourth title of the First Steps series by 9Marks explores these questions and more, showing that the Bible is not only still relevant, it is powerful!
Andrew Mathieson is a 20schemes Church Planter and the lead Pastor of Lochee Baptist Church in Dundee, Scotland. He is married to Lauren, and they have a daughter, Talia, and a son, Stephen.
Christian Focus Publications, 20Schemes and 9Marks are to be congratulated on their collaboration on the First Steps series as they take seriously the challenge of preparing materials designed to equip those from an unchurched background as they begin their Christian life.

The most engaging discipleship material I have ever had the pleasure to read. It is written with theological precision and amazing clarity. The intertwining of propositional truth with an entertaining narrative enhances its readability. It will be a wonderful help for the sceptic, the seeker, and the believer. I hope that the authors have an eye to writing further volumes on equally essential topics of the Christian faith. They are most needed!

It is so refreshing to read such a practical book with such vivid illustrations on such a complex topic. This should be mandatory reading for all seminary students!
Head Pastor, North Shore Baptist Church Bayside, New York
… short and sweet. Profoundly simple, incredibly insightful, and comprehensively concise. I can’t think of a better starting point for anyone beginning their Christian journey (or refreshing the foundations) than this resource on trusting the Bible! I look forward to using this book for years to come.
