A good starter book on apologetics May 31 2012
By Jon Coleman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read the book Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions Volume 2 by Tim Chaffey, Ken Ham, and Bodie Hodge. It is published by Master Books. I decided to read this because I enjoy reading books on apologetics and issues in apologetics. I believe, like the Bible says, that as believers we can help build each other up (as iron sharpens iron, Proverbs 27:17) however stone can also sharpen iron (like the whetstone you use to sharpen your knives) and this book gives both perspectives. It gives a contrasting view in the presentation of the "contradiction" and then presents the solution from a Christian perspective. I like that method.

The book is broken up into distinct sections (Genesis, Exodus-Deuteronomy, etc.), each with a group of supposed contradictions in that section. What the book does it does well. My biggest concern with the book is that it is very brief. At only 174 pages it can't deal with many contradictions (which is, I suppose, why it is a volume 2). It can easily be read over a weekend, possibly multiple times if you wish. That's not to say it's a bad book or doesn't have its purpose. If I wanted to do some reading on this subject while on a plane ride, this would be a good choice. It would also be a good choice to introduce someone to the subject without overwhelming them with a large book on the subject.

I know a lot of people who aren't as interested in apologetics. This would be a book I would buy them to introduce them to the concept. It is easy to read, and like I said, not ponderous in its volume.

This is where I'm supposed to tell you that Master Books sent me this copy for free for the purposes of this review and it hasn't affected my review. It hasn't. I did enjoy this book.

Invaluable resource to break through the smoke screen of "contradictions" May 1 2012
By Haelie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Do you believe that the Bible is the inerrant, infallible, perfect Word of God?

Have you ever been reading the Bible and thought you just read something that contradicted itself?

Has it been pointed out to you by someone (friend, coworker, family member, etc.) that the Bible contradicts itself, so it therefore must not be true?

Upon re-reading the supposed contradictory passages and/or listening to the skeptics reasoning, have you found yourself confused and at a loss as to how the true Word of God could contradict itself in such ways?

I have good news for you.

The Bible does NOT contradict itself and there are a few folks who have set out to not only prove it but also to help us to understand why it does not.

In Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions (edited by Tim Chaffey, Ken Ham, and Bodie Hodge), a host of contributors give very specific, thorough accounts of forty alleged contradictions in the Bible and explain very clearly why they truly are not contradictions at all.

Often times skeptics who use these supposed contradictions as "proof" that the Bible is false do not even realize that they are just falling for throwing up a "smoke screen" to hide the fact that their own beliefs have more contradictions than the Bible supposedly has. Bodie Hodge and David Wright said it better, so check out what they have to say on that point:

Pointing out supposed contradictions in the Bible is really nothing more than a smoke screen to keep people distracted from the real issue---the numerous contradictions in the humanistic worldview. The sad thing is that the skeptics don't realize it is just a smoke screen.. Not only are they blinded from the truth of God's Word, but they also have a tendency to be blinded to the contradictions and inconsistencies of their own worldview. Scripture refers to such people as those "whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe" (2 Corinthians 4:4).

As Christians, it is difficult to know all of these supposed contradictions as well as how to break them down and see that they are in fact not contradictory at all. That is why this resource of Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions is so valuable. Additionally, when faced with these seeming contradictions either in our own Bible reading time or when they are pointed out by skeptics, what are we as Christians to do?

First, we need to remember God's Word is perfect and relevant in all areas of life (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:3). We are sinful, imperfect human beings (Romans 3:23). The correct approach would be to state, "How am I misunderstanding these two passages?" With further study of the Scriptures, guidance from the Holy Spirit, and a desire to uncover the truth, you will likely find the answer. ~ Bodie Hodge and David Wright

With that, I send you on a mission (skeptic and believer alike) to reconsider any supposed Bible contradictions you have read or heard about before, but now in a new light. As a matter of fact, if you are able, I suggest you get a copy of this valuable resource of a book, Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions and see how the various authors in it have clearly and accurately dissected each situation to reveal the truth of God's Word. Then, follow their example and learn to do the same for yourself (with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, of course).

Will help Christians learn to contend and defend the Truth of Scripture June 9 2012
By Dave J. Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Many people struggle with difficulty in reading the Bible; whether it is dealing with supposed errors or having a hard time reading and understanding some of its language. The opponents of Christianity often use supposed contradictions in the Bible to discredit Christianity. Sometimes these attacks undermine the faith of Christians who either don't understand the issues or don't have the resources to deal with them.

Opponents of Christianity will cite what they consider a Bible contradiction or difficulty by comparing one verse to another (or more) that seems to disagree with the first. In doing this, several verses are often references as being contradictory or problematic. In Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions Exploring Forty Alleged Contradictions Editors Ken Ham, Bodie Hodge and Tim Chaffey seek to deal with forty supposed contradictions in the Scriptures. In issues ranging from plants, Eve's certificate, animal sacrifices and marriage the authors seek to deal with what the Bible teaches on its own merits.

This book was written to answer the challenge of the critics who seek to disprove the Bible. This book takes up the critics' challenge, taking on some of the most difficult issues in order to help strengthen the faith of individual believers and the Church. When the Bible is criticized it is most often done so by those who believe the Bible is full of myths and mistakes, or who have abandoned the faith, not understanding there wasn't an error at all.

The goal of the attacks by non-Christians is in the end to get Christians to "give up the battle" (page 9). The authors rightly note that engaging others means "respecting and being gentle with the same grace the Lord showed to us, while being fierce toward the false philosophy that has taken him or her captive" (page 10).

The authors explain that, "Many believers are used to attacking Christianity, but they are rarely required to defend their own worldview. By questioning them about it, we help them realize their own professed worldview falls tremendously short" (page 12). Critics who point out the supposed contradictions in the Bible are engaging in nothing more than a smoke screen to keep people distracted from the real issue--the contradictions in the humanistic worldview. Not only are these people blinded by the truth of God's Word, but they also have a tendency to be blinded to the contradictions of their own worldview. Scripture refers to such people as those "whose mind the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe" (2 Corinthians 4:4).

Evangelical Christians affirm the inspiration, inerrancy, authority and sufficiency of Scripture. The Word of God provides Christians individually and the church corporately a solid foundation (Matt. 7:24-27) rooted in the truth. The Truth of God's Word is absolute and provides the foundation for the preaching and teaching ministry of the Church and helps Christians individually make sense of logic, morals, ethic, sin, and more.

The Bible is perfect and relevant in all areas of life (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:3). We are sinful, imperfect beings (Romans 3:23). Rather than assuming the Bible is wrong or has contradictions, Christians need with further study of Scripture, guidance from the Holy Spirit, accountability from other Christians (not to mention being under godly teaching in our local churches) and a desire to uncover the truth of God's Word, to have a humble posture toward the Word of God that will help them learn the truth of God's Word.

As Christians we have complete confidence in the Author of His Word. Since God is the ultimate author of Scripture, we can be sure that he will not contradict Himself (2 Timothy 2:13). The Bible demonstrates its own truthfulness in the fact hundreds of details prophecies have been fulfilled perfectly, and thousands of archaeological sites have been found precisely where the Bible described them. Just as skeptics once questioned the existence of many of the places in the Bible, the more one digs into the Word, solutions can be found to the supposed contradictions.

The sad thing is that humanists rather than being honest will try to do intellectual gymnastics to jump over the Bible or come to it to impose their beliefs upon it in an attempt to reconcile, explain or make sense of contradictions in their own worldview. Reading Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions Exploring Forty Alleged Contradictions Edited by Ken Ham, Bodie Hodge and Tim Chaffey will help Christians to understand why skeptics argue as they do and how to offer a response to their objections. I recommend you read Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions to learn how to contend and defend the Truth of the Scripture.

Great Book for Building Biblical Trust May 21 2012
By Robert Driskell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions, Volume 2 by Tim Chaffey, Ken Ham and Bodie Hodge is the second installment from the Answers in Genesis team dealing with supposed contradictions in the Bible. Forty supposed biblical contradictions are dealt with in this volume.

Many times, Christians are stopped cold in their attempts to share the biblical message when someone accuses the Bible of containing contradictions. The Christian must be prepared to defend the Word of God against such attacks. This book is a helpful addition in this regard.

Being able to confront these so-called contradictions is a necessary preparation for the believer for two important reasons:

First, the believer who is prepared to give good answers to supposed Bible contradictions will be much more successful in breaking down the barriers that inhibit unbelievers coming to saving faith. We know that it is the Holy Spirit who convicts the heart, but it is our duty to be prepared to be used by God to aid in that conviction. We are to be ready with a defense for why we believe what we believe (I Peter 3:15).

Second, knowing that good answers exist for any question a skeptic might bring up gives the Christian more confidence in his faith and in his God. The Bible is the Word of God and it is Truth. There are no mistakes in truth. If there appears to be a contradiction in the Bible, it is due to our not fully understanding all the issues involved. Through prayer, Bible study, and helpful resources such as this book, seeming contradictions will disappear.

This volume, and its companion Volume 1, helps to prepare the believer to face the skeptic's questions. It helps acquaint the Christian with some issues that might come up in witnessing situations. Many skeptics cling to their autonomy voraciously. Many will attack the Bible, and the Christian's faith, violently. The believer must be ready for that attack.

This book helps the believer prepare a defense for some of the arguments that skeptics are liable to sling his or her way. This builds the believer's faith and stops the skeptic's argument at the same time. It makes the Christian a better prepared representative of Jesus Christ.

Christians will not be able to convince everyone we speak to of the veracity of the Word of God. However, with books like these to help us prepare our arguments, and the Holy Spirit's power working in our hearts and the skeptic's heart, we will be much more effective for the Kingdom of God.

Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions, Volume 2, and all of the books from Master Book publishers, is a helpful addition to any Christian's library.

Defend Your Faith May 18 2012
By leftyjewel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
For years those of us in the Christian community have endured the skeptics of Christianity as they have tried to make everyone (including us) think that only uneducated people believe the Bible. Well, no more! Once again we have a resource from Answers in Genesis that shows the average lay person how to defend his faith in a very competent way.

This book has detailed answers to forty supposed contradictions in the Bible in a very clear and concise manner. It also has a really good introduction that explains why it is better to have a good offense than to just always be on the defensive. With tips on how to turn the tables on the skeptics without being rude, this book could very well change the way Christians see their role in the secular world.

I like a lot about this book. It is short (169 pages) but packed with information. Each "contradiction" is dealt with using the same format:

First, the "problem" is plainly stated and includes the Bible passages that pertain to it.

Second, there is the solution to the question explained in a logical way with scripture references and other sources to back it up.

Finally, there is a short conclusion that ties it all together.

Make no apologies or excuses for the Word of God.
Stand up for what you believe.
Defend your faith.
This book is a must have for the Christian home library.
You will not want to be without it.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher for a fair and honest review. My opinions are my own.
