Book Review: How Do We Know the Bible Is True? ~ Ken Ham & Bodie Hodge
Creation and apologetics are a passion in our family. We want not only to read God's Word, but be able to defend it; that others would come to see who our Creator and Savior really is. When I saw "How Do We Know the Bible is True?" available, it was one of those books that stood out. Knowing what Ken Ham stands for Biblically, I knew this would be a book worth reading.
In fact, Ken Ham and Bodie Hodge are more editor than chief authors. They both have chapters included, but there are actually 28 chapters/articles written by multiple studied pastors/scholars. Each chapter focuses on different aspects of the Bible, such as the history, authors, archaeological evidences, inspiration of God, interpretation, inerrancy of scripture, and questions that non-believers and Christian leaders alike would bring up to question regarding it's accuracy/authenticity.
There are a couple chapters written by Jason Lisle that are very informative but had me feeling like I needed to spend more time on his presentation to wrap my mind around his thought processes. We actually have his book, The Ultimate Proof of Creation, but I have yet to read it through. He was at our church last winter and hearing him speak helped with understanding his writing style.
This is a wonderfully put together book with solid answers based on a literal God-inspired Scripture. The various authors come from the same viewpoint, making the topics flow smoothly and giving the reader a lot to hold dear (and share)!
