A Doubter's Guide To The Bible
The Bible is the most influential book in history, yet remains unexplored by many. In A Doubter's Guide to the Bible, John Dickson gives those observing Christianity from the outside a sense of the whole biblical narrative and the lifestyle it inspires.
A Doubter's Guide to the Bible is a concise account of the whole biblical narrative and the lifestyle it inspires, representing a unique and engaging framework for those observing Christianity from the outside, especially those who think there are good reasons not to believe.
In this book, Dickson provides a readable and winsome Bible primer summarizing the main themes in scripture, and addresses tough questions such as "How can we read the creation account in Genesis in light of modern science " and, "how do we approach Old Testament law when it appears inconsistent and irrelevant"
By presenting the whole of the Bible as an account of God's promise to restore humanity to Himself, and humanity to one another and to creation, Dickson allows believers and skeptics alike to gain insight into why the Bible has been a compelling, life-changing, and magnetic force throughout the ages.
