72 pages. Brilliantly written. On an important subject. And a yellow cover because 2014 is all about the yellow cover.
You’ll be hard pressed to find another book that sums up what the Bible says about itself, what it is about, that it is reliable and trustworthy, how it came about and why it contains the 66 books it does, why we have these different translations, what it means for it to be inerrant, as clearly as this one does.
Now if this was all this short book contained it would still be an excellent resource to put in the hands of Christians to give them confidence in the trustworthiness of God’s Word, and non-Christians to encourage them to take the Bible seriously.
But then we have this final chapter where Barry stops giving us reasons why we can trust the Bible, and says its time for you to find out yourself.
He writes: “God’s words aren’t meant simply to be seen or heard. They are meant to be tasted. Things you only see or hear remain outside you. You can keep them at arm’s length. But you can’t do that with things meant for tasting. You have to take them inside you. Into your mouth, onto your tongue, down into your stomach. They become part of you. They change you.”
And “when you put God’s word into practice” that’s when “you know it’s for real”.
Get this book into the hands of as many people you can and pray that God will use it to get them into the Book!
