This book carries with it some great endorsement (see back cover) but I personally was not impressed with the content. As far as biblical authority is concerned, it is sound, and it touches on a broad range of topics which are essential to apologetics so I applaud it for introducing people to all these concepts, which I suppose is the main goal of this book; however, these topics lack substance so they sometimes, at least in my mind, raise more questions than answers. For example, there is a good chapter on contradictions, but a harmony is provided for the "blind beggar (bartimaeus)" which I thought was insufficient; in chapter 2, the author states that Solomon "Once tried hard not to believe in God" and that he "shook off religion like a wet dog" but I am not sure what he is talking about (though he makes his point). I hoped to offer this as a suggestion for one of my churches sunday school classes, but I don't think that this book presents biblical authority issues in a strong enough way.
"Nothing But the Truth" examines how the Bible came to be and various ways we can know the Bible is accurate. This book was written in an easy-to-follow style and is well-researched. It provided in-depth answers on the various topics without getting exhaustive with the amount of information presented. If you're curious about these aspects of the Bible or want to learn how to respond to critics of the Bible, this would be a good book to read.
