Michael Bird answers the most common questions and misconceptions about the Bible
Seven Things I Wish Christians Knew about the Bible is a short and readable introduction to the Bible--its origins, interpretation, truthfulness, and authority.
Bible scholar, prolific author, and Anglican minister Michael Bird helps Christians understand seven important "things" about this unique book:
how the Bible was put together;
what "inspiration" means;
how the Bible is true;
why the Bible needs to be rooted in history;
why literal interpretation is not always the best interpretation;
how the Bible gives us knowledge, faith, love, and hope; and
how Jesus Christ is the center of the Bible.
Seven Things presents clear and understandable evangelical account of the Bible's inspiration, canonization, significance, and relevance in a way that is irenic and compelling. It is a must read for any serious Bible reader who desires an informed and mature view of the Bible that will enrich their faith.
