eBook Review: How Do We Know The Bible Is True by Ken Ham and Bodie Hodge

ABOUT (From the Publisher):

how-do-we-know-the-bible-is-trueToday there are untold voices in print, on television, and online calling for our attention, and so many of these mock or belittle our faith. From coworkers to those calling themselves Christians, the tone has become one of reproach, disparaging the character of God and undermining the authority of the Bible. For those who have a heart for God, it can be intimidating and discouraging.

How Do We Know the Bible is True?is based on the absolute authority of God’s Word, not man-centered explanations. Clearly presented, it will help bring clarity in a world filled with increasingly vague notions of truth. Over 20 relevant issues are discussed including:

  • Is the Bible totally without error?
  • Did the resurrection really happen?
  • How do we know that the 66 books of the Bible are from God?
  • Does the Bible contradict itself?
  • How were people saved before Jesus came?
  • What is the purpose and meaning of life?
  • Did miracles really happen?
  • Was Genesis derived from ancient myths?
  • How should we interpret the Bible; should Genesis be literal?
  • Do you have to believe in a young earth to be saved?

Within these pages you will find responses to those honest questions of faith, helping to build a confidence in God’s Word and inspiring your daily walk in His grace and peace.

These powerful biblical insights are soundly presented by more than a dozen respected defenders of the faith, including Ken Ham, John MacArthur, Terry Mortenson, Jason Lisle, Brian Edwards, Tommy Mitchell, Jobe Martin, Georgia Purdom, Bodie Hodge, and Roger Patterson.

First, you must understand that this a collection, more than a book. There are 28 topics covered by a variety of different authors. To me, that makes this a good study book, but not something that you would necessarily read cover to cover, thought many might choose to do so. I say that because some chapters, or topics, were not as interesting to me as others. I could see this work being used best as something you referred to when faced with questions on a certain subject, almost like an encyclopedia.

One thing that I appreciated was that this work uses the Bible as its source of truth first, then reaching out to outside sources. You will find a variety of topics. One of my favorite ones was on the Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch.


This is a book that I would recommend as a good source of information and something to keep handy when doing basic fact-finding research. You can purchase this book here.

  1. When discussing doctrine with non-believers, citing scripture as a source is often ignored. A book that addressed those debates would be helpful.
