This first-rate series of six books is a wonderful blend of apologetics, history, archaeology, theology and biblical Studies, suitable for all those who are interested in the Bible’s authenticity, reliability and trustworthiness. They are ideal for 15 year olds upwards. We agree with author and reviewer David Jackman:
“Packed with valuable factual information, detailed documentation, wide-ranging references and penetrating reasoning, not a sceptical stone is left unturned and not a critical argument goes unanswered.”
These books will help you delight afresh in the authoritative Word of God:
“Like a jeweller turning a diamond so that every facet flashes with light, Brian holds up God’s Word so that its perfections shine.”
Dr Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
