Can the Bible be trusted? Do we even know how it was formed and how it got to us? What makes this book so special? Questions like these have nagged at the minds of many people over the years, including Christians. InFoundation, Pastor Jim Nicodem gives clear answers to these and other pressing questions about the trustworthiness of the Bible.

Foundation makes the case that the Bible is God's book. God "breathed" it out through human authors (inspiration), gathered its 66 books into one volume (canon), protected it from errors through centuries of copying (transmission), and faithfully reveals himself and his will for our lives in its pages (revelation). How can we be sure of these claims?Foundation provides plenty of evidence to back them up, giving us the confidence to build our lives on God's Word.

This is a concise and readable summary of apologetic issues that surround the Bible.Foundation engages with some of the recent best-selling books by skeptics that have called into question the Bible's credibility-and soundly refutes them. The bookconcludes with a well-reasoned appeal to prioritize the reading and studying of Scripture in an age when other media vie for our attention.

Perfect for believers at any stage as well as questioners or skeptics, Foundationprovides an accessible resource explaining why the Bible can be trusted and how we can more fully understand it.
