Can a thoughtful person today seriously believe that God wrote a book?
There are an unprecedented number of sophisticated attacks on the origin, credibility, and reliability of the Bible. It can be difficult to know what to say when skepticism and secularism take over so many conversations.
Additionally, confusion and doubt about the Bible being God's Word are becoming as common inside the church as they are in the broader culture. The purpose of this book is to respond to these challenges, sound bites, and slogans...and give people confidence that the Bible can be trusted and that it matters for our lives because God really has spoken.
Questioning the Bible is simply a fabulous book. It asks the skeptical questions people are asking about the Bible and then gives solid answers that are aware of where the real discussion is and what the good options are. In a world that is becoming more skeptical and in a church where many have no idea how to answer such questions, here is a resource that can give real aid and comfort.

Jonathan Morrow deftly addresses eleven major challenges to the Bible's authority... It needs to be read and studied in groups or individually. And it must be given to friends and relatives, especially college students, who need to consider the wisdom in its pages.

The Bible is under more scrutiny than ever before. Yet Jonathan Morrow is up to the task! Questioning the Bible offers insightful and well-researched responses to the top objections. It is ideal for the person who genuinely wants to know whether the Bible can be trusted. I highly recommend it for individuals and group study.
Anyone who thinks apologetics is no longer important doesn't know the world students live in and the questions they ask (and are being asked). But Jonathan Morrow knows students. He knows what they need to know, and that's why this book is so helpful. In it, you will find clear, concise answers that Christians, especially students, need when (not if) the truthfulness of their faith is challenged.

For the skeptic, the Bible is a big target. He raises serious questions about alleged errors, apparent contradictions, canonicity, authorship, textual corruption, morality and much more. At the end of this intellectual onslaught, the Bible's authority is seemingly wiped out and the skeptic feels justified in dismissing it altogether. Tragically, most believers have no adequate response and when the challenges come, most retreat into an anti-intellectual privatized "faith" or worse, lose all confidence in the Bible's authority as well. Church leaders have largely failed to equip their people. That's why Jonathan's book is so important. He answers the most pressing objections to the Bible in a way that is intelligent, relevant and accessible. You don't have to be a scholar to defend the Bible, you just need this book.

In our pluralistic age, evangelical Christianity is increasingly characterized by hesitant witness and half-hearted obedience. Jonathan Morrow charts the erosion of confidence in the Bible that lies at the root of this malaise, and addresses the waves that are causing this erosion. No other book so thoroughly and convincingly addresses the contemporary challenges to the authority of God's word. Questioning the Bible should be read and studied by any Christian attempting to be faithful to Scripture.
