A good resource,
This review is from: When Critics Ask: A Popular Handbook on Bible Difficulties (Hardcover)
Geisler/Howe provide a good resource to respond to the kind of objections that regularly surface when it comes to alleged Bible contradictions or errors. I thought the book was well laid out and logical to follow in terms of presentation. I thought that many of the explanations were adequate, some were exquisite, a few others seemed to fall a bit short. Overall, I think it's a book that can be repeatedly referred to for guidance, since objections to the inerrancy of Scripture are always swirling around even in the midst of sound and compelling rebuttals.
I did not give the book 5 stars for 2 reasons. First, I thought that some (not many) of the explanations offered were a little hollow. But as I'm typing this, I can only think of 2 instances where I thought this. Secondly, there were a few verses in Scripture that were not dealt with in the book that probably deserved to be addressed due to their controversial or non crystal clear meaning. But again, on the whole, I thought this book was pretty thorough both in the verses it analyzed, and in the analysis itself. Not perfect, but a good solid resource.
