Product Description

Biblical faith is being undermined and criticized with an increasing fervor in schools, on job sites, and in the marketplace. Are you equipped to face the onslaught of secular, anti-Christian values and viewpoints? Can you clearly state why you believe in Christ and the authority of the Bible? How does this work in your daily life? In God We Trust is a guided journey that will help you:

  • Identify the influence of the secular worldview and how it attempts to compromise the Word of God.
  • Distinguish between genuine authority and the counterfeit authority of so many at present.
  • Realize how your commitment to God's authority will impact your church, family, and others for Christ.

Author Bio

Author Steve Ham, Director of Outreach at Answers in Genesis, clearly delves into the issues of faith and God’s authority in the life of the believer in order to prepare you to stand firm. An intriguing exploration of why man was never meant to rule himself, but instead to operate within an authoritative structure designed by God. Steve is co-author of Raising Godly Children in an Ungodly World, and the popular evangelism series, Answers for Life.

In his first solo project, In God We Trust, Steve Ham takes on a hefty topic: scriptural authority. According to the foreword by his brother, Ken Ham, Christians “simply do not realize that they don’t have the high view of Scripture they think they have.” Steve Ham aims truly to define the power of Scripture through self-authentication.

Ham divides his work into three sections: the Substance of Authority, the Authority of God, and Authority in Christian Practice. Substance covers the lack, need, and basis for authority. The authority of God addresses God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as one entity and as the Holy Trinity. The third section connects scriptural power to everyday life, bringing the foundational ideas of authority’s definition to a practical application. Throughout the book, Ham scatters anecdotes and uses helpful diagrams for harder concepts, simplifying them into a few words at a time.

According to Ham, Scripture is self-authenticating, that much must be true. “There is no greater reputation and honesty than what we see in the Bible and witness in God. This ultimately is God’s Word, and there is no one greater than God to confirm it.” Anyone can believe or disbelieve God, but if He is the perfect God whom He claims to be, His Word must also be perfect.

As a whole, In God We Trust was eye-opening and a pleasure to read. Ham’s easy-to-understand, logical arguments always lead to solid conclusions and offer a fresh look at biblical authority. Though some sections were mentally heavy, the ideas meshed well and the examples interspersed with facts kept the chapters rolling. Anyone looking to learn or relearn the authority of biblical truth should read In God We Trust. – Valerie Taylor,

    We live in a time when people are asking difficult questions. Questions about faith, belief, spiritual practice, the relevancy of the church in culture; and the validity of the Bible in an era when very few professing Christians actually know what the scripture has to say beyond what they hear on Sunday morning being taught from the pulpit.A time when the very authority of God is questioned.In God We Trust: Why Biblical Authority Matters for Every Believer by Steve Ham (Senior Director of Outreach for Answers in Genesis) seeks to provide an answer to some of those questions and point Christians to the foundation of their faith.I really appreciate Steve Ham's dedication to equipping Christians with the truth and this book is an excellent resource. In God We Trust is thorough and in a easy to understand manner lays out for the Christian believer the reasons why we can trust the Bible as the authoritative and infallible word of Godand why it's necessary to understand that truth.In the book, Ham contrasts the difference between a secular and biblical view, and how we are influenced by the way we see the world. He examines the genuine authority of God through an in-depth look at the Trinity and how we can be undermined in faith and witness as Christians by counterfeit authorities. Ham also points to how biblical authority informs our lives through how we worship, relate to world and the church, defines the structure and function of the family, etc.This book is an important one and should be on every sincere Christian's reading list. Understanding the importance of the Bible in the life of the believer is key to standing firm in our faith. If you've ever had a question about the authenticity or authority of the Bible, In God We Trust by Steve Ham is a "must-read". If you give this book a thoughtful and thorough examination I'm sure you'll agree and recommend it to every Christian you know.

    "In God We Trust" is a mix of Christian Living, theology, and apologetics. It basically says that we have every reason to believe that the Bible is the authoritative and accurate Word of God, so we need to use it to interpret what we see around us rather than using what we see around us to interpret "what the Bible really means." By accepting Biblical authority, our whole way of living will change because we know with assurance what God wants from us and has promised us. The author wrote in a somewhat formal tone, but it was still easy to understand his points. The author used Scripture to make his points. I'd highly recommend this book to all Christians, especially pastors and teachers (both for youth and adult). I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.
