About Why Trust the Bible?
The Bible stands at the heart of the Christian faith. But this leads to an inescapable question: why should we trust the Bible? Written to help non-Christians, longtime Christians, and everyone in between better understand why God’s Word is reliable, this short book explores the historical and theological arguments that have helped lead millions of believers through the centuries to trust the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. Written by pastor Greg Gilbert, author of the popular books What Is the Gospel? and Who Is Jesus?, this volume will help Christians articulate why they trust the Bible when it comes to who God is, who we are, and how we’re supposed to live.

“Now more than ever, Christians need to know how to
defend the truth of God’s Word in the midst of an increasingly hostile world. In
this book for Christians and non-Christians alike, Gilbert sets forth compelling
arguments in support of the trustworthiness of the Bible?equipping believers
with an important tool for engaging a skeptical world.”

“This book fills a great need in a day when people
raise all kinds of legitimate questions about the Bible and its trustworthiness
before they’ll even open it to take a look. Greg Gilbert’s Why Trust the
Bible? answers that question by examining a series of issues people often
raise in order to not take a look at this greatest of books. In everyday
language, he shows why we can trust Scripture and pay attention to what it says

“‘Can we really trust the Bible?’ It’s an important
question to consider, especially in the face of our culture’s skepticism. Greg
Gilbert takes on this question directly, providing clear and convincing answers
that will help the reader fully trust the Scriptures. Why Trust the Bible? is a
great resource for equipping Christians to passionately defend the Bible, and it
also challenges skeptics to rethink their position. I benefitted greatly from
reading this book.”
