I have heard explanations of these issues before by many others including John Piper and John Stott but having read this book, I feel at last I have got the right explanation and it is based upon and backed up by the scriptures in question. Buy it.
In most places Dr. Archer gives thoughtful explanations to difficult Bible passages. It will stimilate your thinking.
This book helps aide those who want to examine these difficulties. I do not agree with the author all of the time. I've seen others give better answers to the same questions. But I must say, when he is on, the author is spot on. And he's on a lot. The book is also not as exhaustive as I would like. My only other problem with the book is that it would have benefited from more people writing in it (to give it more of an encyclopedia feel). However, it is a wonderful resource I highly recommend. I also like how the book deals with some passages that are difficult to understand, not just alleged contradictions.
I highly suggest reading his passage on the critics of Daniel, and how these critics completely ignore the evidence to give it a late date. Why did they give the book a late dating? Because if they didn't, they would be admitting to fulfilled prophecy. That is the bias believers are up against. And that is why I feel justified in saying what I said in the first paragraph of this review.
