"We live in a world that doesn't accept the Bible as the inspired Word of God. In this book, the author takes us through the evidence to show how we can trust that the Bible is really from God. He answers the objections that the world gives for not believing the Bible. Some of these objections include errors in manuscripts, seeming discrepancies in the Gospels, and the lack of belief in miracles. In an increasingly hostile world, young people are being assaulted with reasons not to believe the Bible. Doubts are normal and the author assures the readers that it's okay to have doubts. He then goes on to give valid reasons to answer some of the objections raised in this post-modern world.
This was an excellent apologetic tool for answering critics reasonably and without using the Bible itself to prove its authority. There is ample evidence to trust what the Bible tells us and the author gives great reasons and questions to ask critics in helping to refute their objections. There are conversation starters at the end of each chapter as well as additional books to read for digging deeper into the subjects addressed in that chapter. For those wrestling with how to answer the world's criticisms about the Bible, this book gives great information and resources for refuting the objections.
I would recommend this book for youth pastors to help in preparing young people for the assault they will face on their faith when they enter college or the workplace. Also for those who wrestle with doubts themselves, this book gives encouragement to face those doubts and look for real answers. Anyone who desires to better answer the critics should read this book to be better prepared to defend their faith and to realize that it is not just a blind faith but a faith based on reasonable evidence. The bottom line - read this book!

"Questioning the Bible is simply a fabulous book. It asks the skeptical questions people are asking about the Bible and then gives solid answers that are aware of where the real discussion is and what the good options are. In a world that is becoming more skeptical and in a church where many have no idea how to answer such questions, here is a resource that can give real aid and comfort.” - Darrell Bock, Senior Research Professor of New Testament and Executive Director of Cultural Engagement at Dallas Theological Seminary
“Jonathan Morrow deftly addresses eleven major challenges to the Bible’s authority… It needs to be read and studied in groups or individually. And it must be given to friends and relatives, especially college students, who need to consider the wisdom in its pages.” - J.P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the Talbot School of Theology
"The Bible is under more scrutiny than ever before. Yet Jonathan Morrow is up to the task! Questioning the Bible offers insightful and well-researched responses to the top objections. It is ideal for the person who genuinely wants to know whether the Bible can be trusted. I highly recommend it for individuals and group study." - Sean McDowell, PhD is an assistant professor at Biola university, popular speaker, and the author of Apologetics for a New Generation
“Anyone who thinks apologetics is no longer important doesn’t know the world students live in and the questions they ask (and are being asked). But Jonathan Morrow knows students. He knows what they need to know, and that’s why this book is so helpful. In it, you will find clear, concise answers that Christians, especially students, need when (not if) the truthfulness of their faith is challenged.” - John Stonestreet, Senior Fellow ofWorldview and Culture for the Colson Center for Christian Worldview and co-host of BreakPoint radio
"For the skeptic, the Bible is a big target. He raises serious questions about alleged errors, apparent contradictions, canonicity, authorship, textual corruption, morality and much more. At the end of this intellectual onslaught, the Bible's authority is seemingly wiped out and the skeptic feels justified in dismissing it altogether. Tragically, most believers have no adequate response and when the challenges come, most retreat into an anti-intellectual privatized "faith" or worse, lose all confidence in the Bible's authority as well. Church leaders have largely failed to equip their people. That's why Jonathan's book is so important. He answers the most pressing objections to the Bible in a way that is intelligent, relevant and accessible. You don't have to be a scholar to defend the Bible, you just need this book." - Brett Kunkle, Student Impact Director at Stand to Reason - str.org
In our pluralistic age, evangelical Christianity is increasingly characterized by hesitant witness and half-hearted obedience. Jonathan Morrow charts the erosion of confidence in the Bible that lies at the root of this malaise, and addresses the waves that are causing this erosion. No other book so thoroughly and convincingly addresses the contemporary challenges to the authority of God’s word. Questioning the Bible should be read—studied—by any Christian attempting to be faithful to Scripture. -Garrett J. DeWeese, Research Professor, Talbot School of Theology
