Demolishing Contradictions

AiG’s new book Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions is already very popular. We are also thrilled to see some news reports about it in the Christian media. Recently the Christian Post ran an article about this book. It began with the following:

Does God change His mind? Can all sins be forgiven or are there some that are unforgivable? Why was Rahab praised for lying, when lying is forbidden in the Ten Commandments?

Ken Ham, founder of the Creation Museum, and a team of contributors respond to these questions and more in the new book, Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions, which seeks to defend the word of God against faith critics who claim the Bible is contradictory.

“When we think there are contradictions present, we look carefully and understand what Scripture is telling us in light of other passages,” said Roger Patterson, a contributor to the book, to The Christian Post. “Then we can resolve those conflicts very easily.”

Claims of supposed inconsistencies in the Bible, mostly pushed by atheists, have contributed to a rise in the number of young people leaving the faith.  Ham and his team hope that their easy-to-read book will help Christians to refute any alleged Bible contradictions.

You can read the entire report on the Christian Post’s website:

Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions is an exciting, lay-friendly resource designed to give quick yet thorough answers to questions about more than 40 of the most common supposed mistakes in the Bible. I was privileged to be the editor, and the book was co-written by ten leading apologetics speakers and authors. A few of the dozens of supposed contradictions we tackle include the following:

  • In the Old Testament, God wipes out entire cities and unleashes great suffering. Yet the Bible teaches that God is all-loving.
  • God warned Adam not to eat the forbidden fruit or he would die. But when Adam disobeyed and ate, he lived a full life.
  • Scripture claims that pi equals three; any high-school math student knows that’s not true.
  • A prostitute is praised for lying in James 2, yet the Ten Commandments forbid it.

You can find out more about this book (the first in a series that will be produced over time), and how to obtain it on the online store.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
