Even believers doubt, and many doubters seek reasons to believe. Leading Australian Bible scholar and pastor Dr John Dickson addresses the needs of both in this impeccably researched, easy-to-read guide to the Bible's overarching message. With his hallmark clarity and engaging style, Dickson helps believers and sceptics alike to grasp the Bible's key themes, and also to appreciate its enduring impact as it continues to inspire millions.
John Dickson (Ph.D., Macquarie University, Sydney) is one of Australia's best selling Christian authors. His remarkable published output ranges from academic studies to popular apologetics and youth issues. He is also a gifted communicator, often presenting and defending Christian belief on national television, radio, and in print media for the Centre For Public Christianity.
A Doubter's Guide to the Bible is a concise account of the whole biblical narrative and the lifestyle it inspires, representing a unique and engaging framework for those observing Christianity from the outside, especially those who think there are good reasons not to believe.
In this book, Dickson provides a readable and winsome Bible primer summarizing the main themes in scripture, and addresses tough questions such as ?How can we read the creation account in Genesis in light of modern science? ? and, ?how do we approach Old Testament law when it appears inconsistent and irrelevant??
By presenting the whole of the Bible as an account of God's promise to restore humanity to Himself, and humanity to one another and to creation, Dickson allows believers and skeptics alike to gain insight into why the Bible has been a compelling, life-changing, and magnetic force throughout the ages.
