This book was inspired by the one true God. Talking with God, people wrote down the whole book. It is always consistent and it has no fallacies at all. Our country was built on it. Reading through the bible is fun and you glean a lot. This must read book is the best book of all times. It tells the story of God's love, his plan of salvation ( trust in him to save you), his plan for your life, and he tells how to talk to him (prayer). I am thankful I am one of his children. My only regret is that i couldn't rate it higher.
P.S. I once saw a video clip of people in China receiving bibles and they were so excited. Every one should have one. It does not matter how it looks it is the same inspiring message.
A life changing book with perfect logic and themes that anyone can understand (even my 5 year old brother). This is the book that changed the world and is what our country was founded on. Additionally the Bible can be proved scientifically. To test the accuracy of a historical document you use three tests: the internal test, the external test, and the bibliographical test. The internal test makes sure that there are no contradictions within the document. The Bible passes this test better than any document of its time. There are many supposed contradictions, but you must use Aristotle's dictum just like any other historic document and then the Bible has no contradictions but there are a few difficulties. The external test is the test that insures that the document in question is consistent with other books of its time. The Bible passes this with flying colors, much better than any other document of its time. In fact there was a historian who thought the Bible was wrong and very publically said so, but after a lifetime of study and archeology was forced to admit he was wrong and the Bible was extremely accurate even to the smallest detail, which shows how convincing the evidence is. The bibliographical test requires a short time span between original and copy as well as many supporting documents for the copy of interest. Now, the work of Sophocles has 193 different copies, one of the most copies you will see of a book in conjunction with ancient history. Unfortunately the first copies were made 1,400 years after the original, but the Bible has over 24,000 copies only 25 years after the original was made. Think about that, the Bible blows other document out the window in comparison. This proves scientifically that if you don’t believe the Bible, which is proved accurate, you can’t trust any historic document. There are many other scientific ways to show the Bible is true, you can also expand a lot on what I said, in fact, there are entire books about this. Many people ignore or don't know the truth but don't let that stop you from believing the truth.
