    Philip Carlson, Ph.D. (cand.)
    What exactly is a general introduction to the Bible? The first thoughts are, this must be really basic, this probably includes things like basic bibliology (doctrines of inspiration, inerrancy etc.), a basic overview of manuscripts and canonization including biblical themes. That is what I was expecting. You will find some of these themes in this book but it will be treated at a much more thorough and academic way. If you are familiar with Josh McDowell's Evidence that Demands a Verdict particularly the section on manuscripts and historical evidence you will recognize some of the things in this book. Take those facts (from McDowell's work) and imagine them being skived off the very brim of this masterpiece. This book can serve as the end all reference for matters of this type (see the table of contents, in the excerpt, and expect each topic to be masterfully treated). It is packed deep and dense yet will be one of the best references in your library. Also, the thickness of this book was unexpected it is more than 700 pages. Very exhaustive, in a good way! If you ever teach a lesson over Bibliology, or any type of survey class this book is a must have. It does not serve as an old and new testament survey (Geisler has other good books on those topics). It serves more as a detailed tome of other topics related to the Bible (see the table of contents). Get this book! Geisler is a true scholar and has a myriad of books, this one, in particular, seems almost more academic then most you will come across. Academic in the sense that it is packed with facts and discusses issues that you normally don't see in other books on this topic. That is not a bad thing as you can always skip over sections you find too difficult. There are so many good things in this book that you should not let its level of scholarship deter you from getting this book. Enjoy!

    Excellent if you like scholarly works. Most laymen probably wouldn't like it though. If you can handle something at this level I would recommend it.

    Best in Class award! Yes, this is an "academic" level book, but it is well worth whatever effort you have to muster up in order to read it. You will not regret it. It is the best and most comprehensive book I've seen on this important subject.

    This is the best comprehensive work I have seen on a history of the development of our sacred scriptures. In a very systematic way, Geisler and Nix define and defend the biblical doctrine of inspiration and go on to discuss canonization and transition of both the Old and New Testament. Their organized and logical discussion of the bible overwhelmingly demonstrates the validity and reliability of scripture and as a result demonstrates its divine authenticity and authority.

    THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST INTRODUCTION TO BIBLICAL STUDY I HAVE COME ACROSS. FOR THOSE WHO DESIRE A GREATER ACADEMIC COMPREHENSION OF THE SACRED SCRIPTURES ONE NEED NOT LOOK ANY FURTHER. THIS VOLUME WILL LAY THE FOUNDATION FOR A REAL SCIENTIFIC APPROACH IN AQUIRING A RESPECTABLE UNDERSTANDING OF THE VERY WORD OF GOD. THIS BOOK SHOULD OCCUPY A SPACE ON THE BOOK SHELF OF EVERY CHRISTIAN HOME. IT WILL ALSO SERVE AS AN EXCELLENT REFERENCE FOR THE HOME SCHOOLER AS WELL AS THE PROFESSIONAL CHRISTIAN EDUCATOR.
