Layton Talbert explains clearly, and in an engaging way, that if we do believe what God says, we bring glory to Him; and we enjoy the confidence in his sovereignty that enables us to ‘laugh at the days to come’ (Proverbs 31:25).
Sharon James, Social Policy Analyst, The Christian Institute
Written in a very accessible style with helpful practical applications, this book (which includes an outstanding summary of the Kingdom of God on earth for worldview context), ought to be in the library of every Christian and re–read at least annually.
Craig Hartman , Director of Shalom Ministries Author of Through Jewish Eyes
… a very useful work which is not a conventional defence of the complete trustworthiness of God’s Words encapsulated in Scripture, but more of a series of applications for believers. The book rests on the foundation that God’s word is true, and is to be trusted, and that faith is intellectual, emotional and volitional.
Peter Barnes, Pastor, Author, Lecturer, Revesby Presbyterian Church, Revesby, New South Wales, Australia
Hermeneutically nuanced. Theologically sound. Pastorally sensitive. Layton Talbert offers both the church and the academy a valuable service here. I heartily recommend it to God’s people as an antidote to unbelief in God’s Word.
A. Philip Brown II, Professor of Bible and Theology, Graduate Program Director, God’s Bible School and College (Cincinnati, Ohio)
… helps to strengthen our wavering faith by showing us how and why God’s words are absolutely trustworthy. The author then shows how a clear understanding of God’s trustworthiness affects our everyday lives.
Kevin Bauder , Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Central Baptist Theological Seminary, Plymouth, Minnesota Author of several books including Baptist Distinctives and New Testament Church Order
… does not merely list the usual prooftexts (though there’d be nothing wrong with that!) and draw out their implications; no, he demonstrates in concrete text after text within Scripture that God’s words are trustworthy. Talbert not only trusts God’s words, he models that truth by rooting it in careful examination of those words.
Mark Ward, Editor of Faithlife’s Bible Study Magazine Author of Authorized: The Use and Misuse of the King James Bible
This helpful study shows that the very integrity of God is at stake in the veracity of His words. They are true because he is true. There is great comfort in the truthfulness of God’s words!
Jeff Straub, Professor of Historical Theology, Central Baptist Theological Seminary, Plymouth, Minnesota
… he meticulously shows from Scripture itself that God is true to his word, and that great blessings and comfort come to those who trust him. Deeply biblical and thoroughly pastoral, this book is a must–read for every Christian.
Scott Aniol, Executive Vice President and Editor–in–Chief of G3 Ministries
Layton Talbert demonstrates from God’s own words that God is passionate about vindicating the complete integrity and trustworthiness of his words. All of God’s words are reliable. God always keeps his words.
