Some books on the Bible

I mentioned this past Sunday at Hub City that there are hundreds of books that contain evidence about the reliability and trustworthiness of the Bible. I want to recommend a few.

The New Evidence that Demands a Verdict - by Josh McDowell. This is a fantastic resource that not only discusses the reliability of the Bible, but Jesus, the resurrection and much much more. You should get this book.

Is the Bible Really True - by Josh McDowell. This is in the form of a story. Not the best fiction writing in the history of humanity, but it does have some great evidence.

The Case for Christ - by Lee Strobel. This book is one of those "must read" books. It is all about Jesus, but there's a section on the reliability of the gospels. 

The Book that Made Your World - by Vishal Mangalwadi. This book is fascinating. It looks at how the world we live in has been shaped by the Bible. In terms of how it relates to the reliability of the Bible I'd say it has to do with, "the proof is in the pudding." I'll warn you. It is a long book and a bit difficult to read, but if you can plow through you won't regret it.

Jesus: A Theography - by Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola. The entire Bible is about Jesus. This book is a graduate level course on that truth. It is also hard to read at times, but is fascinating.

I could recommend more, but those will keep you busy for a while. My encouragement to those of us who call ourselves disciples of Jesus is that we do some work to figure out why we believe what we believe. As we do I believe that God will grow our faith and use us to introduce others to Jesus so that they have the opportunity to be his disciple.
