This week we look into “How We Got the Bible and Why You Can Trust It” by Mike Taliaferro, who is a part of our family of churches.
“So often I speak to believers who do not realize the depth of evidence that substantiates the Scriptures. Students, parents, and other Bible readers don’t realize how much positive evidence exists.”
The book is a quick and helpful read, especially for disciples who grew up around the bible, and may have missed building a belief on its authenticity upon a foundation other than “growing up with it”. A good supplement to quiet times and helpful in answering questions from non religious friends!
Each year, much of the buzz about Christians from the church’s perspective comes to demystify tradition and correct some of the fluff and additives that got mixed in with the biblical story. This article is in that camp. It is a good reminder and view of the Christmas story.
This is the real story of Christmas, the heart of Christianity: brokenness and new birth. The same God who birthed life into Sarah’s dead womb had now breathed life into Elizabeth and Mary. And Mary’s child’s life, death, and resurrection would breathe new birth into God’s people through the ages.
Want to grow in your evangelism, here is a short intro video to a series made by Intervarsity Ministries on just that, equipping the young disciple to effectively share with those around them, bringing people from a place of no faith/interest, to following Christ!
