There is a common assumption that the Bible is “full” of errors and contradictions, and that its often-unusual people and events render it useless for today. These ideas are fueled by the teachings of scholarly critics, who seem to delight in raising questions about the Bible’s truthfulness and integrity.
But the critics of the Bible are wrong, according to Dr. R.C. Sproul in this Crucial Questions booklet. In fact, he says, there are many solid reasons to trust the Bible. With Jesus, with the apostles and prophets, and with men of God throughout church history, Dr. Sproul affirms a high view of Scripture—that it is inspired of God and therefore inerrant and infallible.

The Crucial Questions Series
Throughout his nearly fifty years of teaching the content of the Bible and theological concepts, Dr. R. C. Sproul has “majored on the majors” — the most important doctrines and truths of the Christian faith. As a gifted communicator, Dr. Sproul has helped many believers grow in their understanding of such matters as the nature of God, the history of redemption, and the manner in which we are saved.
Now Dr. Sproul’s lucid teaching on these vital matters is available in a series of concise booklets that are perfect for personal learning and refreshing, as well as small-group study. The initial booklets in the Crucial Questions series deal with such topics as the true identity of Jesus, the will of God, the value of prayer, and the trustworthiness of the Bible. Future booklets in the series will address equally important subjects. For a quick introduction to matters at the very core of the Christian life, for yourself or a friend, consider the Crucial Questions booklets from Reformation Trust Publishing.
