Informative answers to many of your questions about the Bible!
In 735 Baffling Bible Questions Answered, Larry Richards examines hundreds of the most commonly asked questions about the Old and New Testaments. He writes "The Bible is reliable as well as relevant. It truly is a book whose words were inspired by God and which conveys trustworthy information".
In brief, information-packed responses, Richards looks at a wide variety of perplexing Bible questions. Topics range from authorship and internal contradiction to scientific error and historical inaccuracy. Some examples of questions include:
Why are different census counts given in Old Testament historical books?
Can the claims about the long lifespans of people before the Genesis flood be justified scientifically?
Isn't the Old Testament's "eye for an eye" principle in conflict with Jesus' rule, "Love your enemies"?
Working through the Bible book by book, Richards examines these and hundreds of other baffling questions. Furthermore, he comments on passages that are hard to understand and yet don't raise problems. 735 Baffling Bible Questions Answered is a valuable resource for those interested in teaching, leading, apologetics, and Bible study.
