on 1/6/2016 Know how we got our Bible!
Please see my detailed review here: It will happen to each believer at least one time in their life. That time when someone asks you why you believe the Bible to be the true Word of God. When they tell you that it was written by man, or not reliable as God's true Word, you need to be able to give an answer to them explaining why you believe the Bible to be inerrant and infallible. Dr. Timothy Paul Jones does a fantastic job helping you gain a true understanding of why we can trust the Word of God as we have it today. This is a complete kit to help your or a small group really understand how we got the Bible and why it is reliable. I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone that wants to understand the history of the Bible that we read today. I received a free copy of the materials in this Bible Study kit from Rose Publishing in return for my honest and unbiased review.
on 9/16/2015 Biblical Origins Explained
This study reveals the long process used to preserve the contents of our Bible through the centuries. From memorized (oral) history as seen by eye witnesses to events which happened during the life of Jesus Christ to written written word decades after His crucifixion, and translations from several languages many centuries later. The study is informative, valuable and entertaining for people who question the origins of the Bible and for those interested in Christian history. While this study is aimed primarily at adults, those in the middle through late teen years might also find the material of interest. [Advanced reader review]
on 7/18/2015 Countering Those Urban Myths About the Bible
Has it ever struck you -- when passing the inevitable headline on a checkout counter magazine -- that, in fact, you don't have an immediate answer to the suppositions about the Biblical canon, and what THEY (?) are hiding from you -- mainly because, other than knowing the names of men such as Wycliffe and Tyndale, you are not all that familiar with the story of how the Bible was brought to us, over time. Problem is, so many of the ways to acquire this knowledge involve reading a several volume tome -- and this might not be the priority for your biblical studies right now. Fret no more! This six-DVD study is simple enough yet detailed enough to inform you on this topic, so that, next time someone informs you of some popular but misled beliefs about the Word of God, you will not only have an answer, but, perhaps, some interesting info for them, as well. Good format, also,by the way! Good from teenage onward. Rose Publishing forwarded a free excerpt for my candid review.
