One of the things I love about writing for children is how it takes me on a journey of learning for myself. When I wrote the book: The Bible is God’s Word – The Evidence http://www.christianfocus.com/item/show/1725/-/sr_1 – it introduced me to a set of books on the authority of scripture. I was reading a genre, I suppose you would call it, of Christian books that I hadn’t really explored before. And it has been of huge benefit to me.
I want to introduce you today to one of the key books that I read during my research, it’s not difficult, it’s not long but it may be one of those titles that have just missed your radar as it has been in print for a while. So I’m taking the opportunity of giving it a big thumbs up.
It’s a good starter title for someone who wants to get into apologetics. Spurgeon did say that we don’t need to worry about the Bible – it’s like a lion – just let it out and it will look after itself. But as believers we need to have information to help us engage with unbelievers about the truth of God’s Word. This book by Colin Peckham does just that.
The Authority of the Bible
If you have friends who insist that science has proved the Bible to be wrong a book like this is just what you need to read.
Just an idea: If you want to give different members of your family the gift of a book how about giving them a book on the theme of the Bible appropriate for their age range/level.
Could be interesting to have everyone round the dinner table talking about the Bible?
