Many people assume that science has proven the Bible wrong, yet that is not the case. The Bible, when probed to its minutest detail, is shown to be accurate in historical and geographical details. The Bible is more than just an accurate historical document; it is a book about the Christ. The Old Testament contains hundreds of predictions about Jesus, and the author of this book details the way in which many of them are fulfilled.
Colin Peckham shows from the Bible the relevance of Christianity in today's multicultural context and how it compares with Hinduism, Islam and other world religions. He also shows us what Christ's attitude was towards the Old Testament. We are also shown how archaeology, sometimes used to try to disprove the authority of the Bible, and other external evidence have confirmed the trustworthiness of biblical text.
This is an important book, clarifying much of the misinformation of the past century and re-establishing the essential correctness of the Bible. If you want to find out why so many people trust the Bible then this is a great place to start.
Colin Peckham (1936-2009) was born in South Africa and formerly principal of Faith Mission College. He is married to Mary and they have three adult children and one grandchild.
