Is The Bible True?


Is the Bible true? Who wrote the Bible? These are vital questions that deserve serious investigation and a serious response. The Bible isn’t just a “religious book” – it’s a collection of history books written by 40 authors over some 1,600 years. These writers came from all walks of life (from kings and warriors to fishermen and shepherds). The claims in these books may seem dramatic (or unrealistic to some), but a careful and honest study of these historical texts will show them to be truly unique and special.
