There are some really good deals on Kindle this week, including study Bibles and chronological Bibles. Here is another: Why Believe the Bible? by Dr. John MacArthur is currently only $1.99 for the Kindle version — that’s 85% off the normal price.
One thing we want our children to know when they go out into this world is why they believe what they believe — where their confidence comes from. They need that strong foundation to stand against the relativism that is so pervasive in our culture.
Why Believe the Bible? reignites confidence in the power of God’s Word.
My main passion is teaching and preaching the Word of God. That is why I wrote this book with lay readers in mind. It is not meant to be a textbook or an academic treatise; it is just a simple, basic introduction to the Word of God, highlighting the Bible’s proper role as the Christian’s sole, sufficient, and final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
It is also a plea to Christians to keep a proper focus on Scripture as they try to navigate this pathologically shallow, media-hungry, entertainment-oriented, pleasure-mad, distraction-filled culture.
The book is broken down into three main parts:
- Why we really can believe the Bible.
- What God’s Word does for us.
- How to get the most from God’s Word.
You’ll also find Bible reading and study plans in the appendix.
‘The time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths’ (2 Timothy 4:3–4).
We are living in such a time, and the only way to resist the downward pull of a declining society is by anchoring our lives in the Word of God….
My hope is that if you are a believer, this book will not only bolster your confidence in the authority and reliability of God’s Word but also motivate you to become a student and a lover of the Bible. And if you are not yet a believer, I trust you will consider the claims of Scripture seriously, with an open heart. May the Spirit of God grant you an understanding of the things freely given to us by God.
