The Bible isn't meant to be left unquestioned; it's meant to be opened and read and questioned. And everyone has questions about the Bible--from the senior pastor of the big church down the road to the guest at the hotel off the interstate. Where did it come from? Who wrote it? Why are people so inspired by it (or fearful of it)? What does it have to do with my life? Hal Seed takes you on a tour into and behind the Bible, so that you get to know it and the God who makes himself known in it.

Review:

"If you have a desire to answer inquiring minds about the particulars of the World's Most Important Book or maybe you'd like to satisfy your own curiosity about some of the details of the Bible's purpose or history, this is a tremendous place to start." (Adam Griffin, YouthWorker Journal, May/June 2013)

"Giving a satisfactory overview of Scripture that is clear enough not to be easily misunderstood, concise enough to not be intimidating, and sufficient enough to adequately cover this enormous topic is a tall task rarely attempted or achieved. Hal Seed seems to have tackled it masterfully in his new book The Bible Questions." (Adam Griffin, YouthWorker Journal, November/December 2012)

"With The Bible Questions, Hal Seed has succeeded in writing one of those rare books that has the ability to benefit new believers, longtime believers and full-fledged skeptics alike. For believers, it provides great insight and tools for taking our faith to a deeper level--not to mention it is full of the practical information we need to be able to speak intelligently about the volume that is the basis of our belief. For skeptics, it offers a thorough discussion of many of the issues that often fuel concern and debate. I recommend this powerful resource to anyone who wants to learn more about the Bible." (Nelson Searcy, lead pastor, The Journey Church, and founder, www.ChurchLeaderInsights.com)

"In The Bible Questions, Hal Seed sheds light on all aspects of what God intends for us with the Bible and how we can study it more effectively. Because he is a scholar as well as a teacher and practicing church leader, I cannot imagine a better all-around book for anything from a comprehensive church sermon series to a personal learning experience for Christians anywhere and everywhere!" (Bil Cornelius, founding pastor of Bay Area Fellowship and author of Go Big and I Dare You to Change)

"Hal Seed has given us all a great gift. His new book makes the Book more accessible to us all. If you have any questions about the Bible--this is the place to start." (John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church and author of Who Is This Man?)

"This lively book covers important ground for the curious, the new believer and even the veteran follower of Jesus. The quick-moving blend of stories, historical trivia and interesting factoids covers everything from the basics such as 'Who decided what went into the Bible?' to tough questions such as 'Why was God so violent in the Old Testament?' It's good theology, stimulating content and rich with practical application." (Warren Bird, research director for Leadership Network and coauthor of The Other 80 Percent: Turning Your Church's Spectators into Active Participants)

"The Bible Questions answers what both Christians and non-Christians are asking about the Bible, which makes it a perfect outreach campaign for a church. I highly recommend it!" (Scott Evans, president of Outreach, Inc.)

"The Bible Questions serves as a timely guide to the timeless Scriptures. New believers to aspiring theologians will appreciate its depth and simplicity. If you are looking for one book that combines academic scholarship along with practical application, this book is for you." (Eric Swanson, missional specialist for Leadership Network and coauthor of The Externally Focused Church)

"I have read and studied the Bible many times over my fifty-plus years of ministry. But as I read The Bible Questions, I found myself saying over and over, 'I didn't know that!' The Bible Questions is well written, simple, short but thorough, and a practical guide for study by a small group or an individual. I recommend the book for the beginner or the longtime Christian who wants to learn more about the Bible." (Bill Easum, president, 21st Century Strategies)

"In this book, Hal Seed demystifies the Bible's origins, giving insight into how it came about why it is organized the way it is, and what the various parts point to as a whole. . . . This book is recommended." (Bible Review Journal, Fall 2014)
