The Bible is a cobbled–together selection of ancient writings that have been changed so many times by so many people over hundreds of years that surely the text can no longer be trusted – right? Certainly, there are plenty of people who take this view. Timothy Paul Jones here addresses the fact that the Bible is a difficult book to believe. It is full of incidents that seem highly improbable, if not impossible. Written for people who are sceptical of its accuracy, and of its authority, this book takes a reasonable look at the claims made about the Bible.
Timothy Paul Jones
Timothy Paul Jones is professor of apologetics and director of the Center for Christian Apologetics at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He also hosts a popular weekly music and apologetics podcast, Three Chords and the Truth: The Apologetics Podcast.
This is Timothy Paul Jones at his best. Witty. Transparent. Always wrestling with the hardest of questions while holding out the faith once for all delivered to the saints. This is an essential resource for contemplating and critiquing contemporary attacks on the trustworthiness of the Bible.
Author of Life in the Wild & Associate Professor of Applied Theology and Apologetics, Cedarville University, Ohio
Why Should I Trust the Bible? steps inside our most challenging doubts about the Bible and shows us a way out to faith in its truthfulness. Written in an disarmingly honest and straightforward way, Timothy Paul Jones’s down–to–earth stories and up–to–date scholarship create a space in our skeptical world for authentic belief in the Bible. Highly recommended!
