Questions about the Bible
The 100 Most Frequently Asked Questions About the Bible
About the Book
There has never been another book like the Bible. And there never will be. Only the Word of God is “living and enduring” (1 Peter 1:23) and is more precious “than much pure gold” (Psalm 19:10). Only the Bible is “God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16).
Being divinely inspired, the Holy Bible deserves our full attention, reverent study, and diligent application. God has spoken, and His words have been written down, preserved, and translated for our eternal benefit.
The Bible answers life’s most important questions, but it also raises questions from many quarters. From the skeptic: “Why should I take stories of miracles literally?” From pastors: “What is the difference between exegesis and eisegesis?” From the neophyte: “Where is a good place to start reading the Bible?” From the merely curious: “What is a shekel?”
Got Questions Ministries has been answering questions about the Bible since 2002. In this book are one hundred of those questions and their Bible-based answers. May you find this volume helpful in understanding the Book, and may you “do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman … who correctly handles the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15).
