Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions
Exploring Forty Alleged Contradictions
Editors: Ken Ham, Bodie Hodge & Tim Chaffey
As a Christian I have often heard non-Christian, and even uneducated, luke-warm Christans, mention contradictions in God’s Word. I haven’t given it much thought, instead choosing to have the faith as a child and just know that God didn’t make any mistakes, that it must be through the interpretation that there was error.
That is exactly what this book is intended for, working out those interpretations and bringing them into the light through additional passage references, looking at the times during when they were written, and taking into account translation from the original Word.
40 supposed contradictions from Genesis through Revelation. Each one given a problem statement, or verses that allegedly contradict one another. Then offers a solution for the reader to demolish this contradiction, and then a conclusion for the reader to take the knowledge and utilize it when confronted.
Many of these I have seen scattered around the Creation Museum on signs as you walk through the Bible. I remember reading them then and thinking they were a great treasure to remember. Being of little memory, I of course didn’t retain them from that and was so glad to see them written in this second volume of Demolishing Strongholds.
This is a book to read through, and get an understanding of the scriptures that those questioning the faith may present to you as contradicting. It is an excellent reference to hang on to when those times present themselves and you may or may not as in my limited memory be able to give a solid reason why. I can always say, hold on.. I have a book on that!!
From a homeschool Mom standpoint I think this would be a wonderful book for the teens to read and reference as well. They will come up against many of these once the leave the nest and need to take their biblical worldview out into the world. Perfect guide for young graduates to take with them as well. I am thankful for the editors and researchers who commit time to bringing these contradictions under scrutiny and glorifying God.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
