Attacks against the truth and reliability of Scripture are commonplace. Skeptical scholars have become mainstream, entertainment media mocks believers, and YouTube and podcasting have given a platform to just about anyone wanting to promote their arguments against Scripture and the Christian faith.
Many of these attacks focus on a single assertion: the Bible is an ancient book written and assembled by flawed men with particular agendas.
So can we trust that what is contained in the Bible is really God’s Word? Listen as we speak with Bible scholar and translator Dr. Bill Mounce about why we can trust the Bible and the truth claims it makes.
On this episode we’ll discuss:
- Common questions believers and non-believers ask about the reliability of Scripture
- Why skepticism is increasing in today’s culture
- Why believers should not shy away from having and asking sincere questions
- How we can be better equipped to answer tough questions
- Reasons we can trust the reliability of our Bibles
- Why Dr. Mounce personally trusts his Bible
