Challenges to the reliability of Scripture are perennial and have frequently been addressed. However, some of these challenges are noticeably more common today, and the topic is currently of particular interest among evangelicals.

In this volume, highly regarded biblical scholar Craig Blomberg offers an accessible and nuanced argument for the Bible's reliability in response to the extreme views about Scripture and its authority articulated by both sides of the debate. He believes that a careful analysis of the relevant evidence shows we have reason to be more confident in the Bible than ever before. As he traces his own academic and spiritual journey, Blomberg sketches out the case for confidence in the Bible in spite of various challenges to the trustworthiness of Scripture, offering a positive, informed, and defensible approach.

From the Back Cover:

Confidence in the Bible in the Face of Contemporary Challenges

"Mention the Bible, especially a hot topic like canon or miracles, and one second later you will hear strident voices attacking the Bible's silliness or calling others names for not believing the Bible. Those topics, and many more besides, are volatile because they matter, and what matters most for the discussion is the voice of reason and balance. Enter Craig Blomberg with nothing less than a splendid example of 'generous apologetics' for the faith. Whether you agree on specific points, this is the finest example I know of for how to defend the Bible."
--Scot McKnight, Northern Seminary

"The Bible has gone from being the answer to being the question in our culture. Can I still believe what it claims? Answering emphatically yes, Blomberg examines the pitfalls of making the Bible say too little or too much, both real problems for understanding how the Bible works. So read and consider anew how to think about Scripture. The result will be that belief in the Bible makes sense."
--Darrell Bock, Dallas Theological Seminary

"Blomberg's defense of the Scriptures' truthfulness is both important and timely. He keeps the main thing the main thing as he warns well-meaning believers about drawing rigid lines in the wrong places--and damaging the church's witness--while dispelling myths and correcting distortions propounded by Christianity's loudest critics. This book is a superb resource and guide regarding what the Bible's trustworthiness means--and doesn't mean."
--Paul Copan, Palm Beach Atlantic University

"Blomberg advances a vigorous evangelical biblical scholarship that charitably engages outsiders while courageously challenging the most strident evangelical voices, who too often preach to their choirs while alienating others from the faith. Readers of this wide-ranging work will gain a much clearer understanding of mainstream evangelical biblical scholarship."
--Craig S. Keener, Asbury Theological Seminary

"Blomberg takes on critics of the Bible with the credibility of a scholar and the passion of a believer."
--Leith Anderson, president, National Association of Evangelicals
