Why Should I Trust the Bible?

“If you’ve never been asked why the Bible can be trusted, you will be. If you’ve never asked that question yourself, you should.”

—Korey Maas, Assistant Professor of History, Hillsdale College

You’ve got tough questions about the Bible.

Maybe you’ve even heard things like “the Bible is racist.” Or “the Bible has too many errors and edits.” Or “the Bible is merely a mythological story like Homer’s Odyssey.”

This book tackles accusations like those head on. Pastor Sutton compares the Bible to writings that have been deemed more credible, like the Book of Mormon, encyclopedias, and even Shakespeare’s works. He tests the Bible using the same rigorous standards that have been used to test those other writings. He examines historical evidence, witness accounts, and translation concerns.

By the end, you’ll be able to better defend your faith when its very foundation is attacked. You’ll get many of your tough questions answered. And you’ll see that when all other texts fall, the Bible still stands—as completely, undeniably trustworthy.

“Over the course of a thousand years, the biblical text remained the same. . . . The Bible is one continuous confession that Jesus is Lord.”
