Book Review: How Do We Know the Bible Is True? ~ Ken Ham & Bodie Hodge

One of the reasons we opted to homeschool our children was to instill in them the significance and truth of God's Word.  We didn't want them continuously exposed to the theory of evolution without seeing the flip side of the coin.  Evolution is taught as a fact in most schools, when it is nothing more than a theory; a theory that takes more faith to believe in than the Biblical account of creation.

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)!
