Is The Bible True?


Is the Bible true? The Bible is a history book thatís supported by archaeology, and a prophetic book that has lived up to all of its claims so far. The Bible is a collection of 66 ancient texts written by 40 distinct writers over a period of approximately 1,600 years. The claim of divine inspiration may seem dramatic (or unrealistic to some), but a careful and honest study of the biblical scriptures will prove to be a profound undertaking! Start hereÖ
