Can the Bible be trusted? Do we even know how it was formed and how it got to us? What makes this book so special? Questions like these have nagged at the minds of many people over the years, including Christians. In Foundation, Pastor Jim Nicodem gives clear answers to these and other pressing questions about the trustworthiness of the Bible.
Foundation makes the case that the Bible is God's book. God "breathed" it out through human authors (inspiration), gathered its 66 books into one volume (canon), protected it from errors through centuries of copying (transmission), and faithfully reveals himself and his will for our lives in its pages (revelation). How can we be sure of these claims? Foundation provides plenty of evidence to back them up, giving us the confidence to build our lives on God's Word.
This is a concise and readable summary of apologetic issues that surround the Bible. Foundation engages with some of the recent best-selling books by skeptics that have called into question the Bible's credibility-and soundly refutes them. The book concludes with a well-reasoned appeal to prioritize the reading and studying of Scripture in an age when other media vie for our attention.
Perfect for believers at any stage as well as questioners or skeptics, Foundation provides an accessible resource explaining why the Bible can be trusted and how we can more fully understand it.

Pastor Nicodem outlines the basic structure of the Bible, its foundational beliefs, and what to do with this essential book.
He lists four things one must know when they study God's Word in order to get the most of the Bible:
(1) The storyline of the Bible
(2) The reliability of the Bible
(3) How to understand the Bible
(4) How to apply the Bible
After a brief introduction. Pastor Nicodem dives into the autobiography of God (the Doctrine of Inspiration), moves to the History of the Bible, transitions to the only way to know God (Doctrine of Revelation), and concludes with the means of Learning. Each of these four chapters ends with a Study Guide that is practical for small group and personal study.
The research of this book is well grounded in fact and Biblical fact. James Nicodem lays out a clear cut path to knowing God or knowing God better. This is a well written book that is a must read for everyone. It is easy to read with a flowing text. I highly recommend it.
