OVERCOMING BIBLE DIFFICULTIES: Answers to the So-Called Errors and Contradictions

Free sample

The Bible is loaded with thousands of difficult, challenging passages, many of which become obstacles in the development of our faith. These difficulties arise out of differences in culture, language, religious and political organizations, not to mention between 2,000 to 3,500 years of separation between the Bible author and the modern day reader. Calling attention to these difficulties and sifting out the misconceptions, Andrews defends the full inerrancy of the Bible, clarifies the so-called errors and what might seem like apparent contradictions. He arms the Christian with what he or she needs to defend their faith in the Bible.  


OVERCOMING BIBLE DIFFICULTIES will help its readers

 John 8:31-32 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you remain in my word , you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free .”

Delving into the basics of biblical interpretation, Edward D. Andrews has provided a complete hands-on guide to understanding what the author meant by the words that he used from the conservative grammatical-historical perspective. He teaches how to study the Bible on a deep, scholarly level, yet making it understandable to all. He has sought to provide the very best tool for interpreting the Word of God. This includes clarification of technical terms, answers to every facet of biblical interpretation, and defense of the inerrancy and divine inspiration of Scripture.

Andrews realizes that the importance of digging deeper in our understanding of the Bible, for defending our faith from modern day misguided scholarship. Andrews gives the reader easy and memorable principles and methods to follow for producing an accurate explanation that comes out of, not what many read into the biblical text. The principal procedure within is to define, explain, offer many examples, and give illustrations, to help the reader fully grasp the grammatical-historical approach. Finally, Andrews provides the next generation of Christians, a fresh new Bible reading/study program. This program will not only help the reader know the Bible, but also be able to interpret it, explain it, defend it, and use it when sharing their faith.

 We look at our television, computers, tablets, cell phones, watching in horror as terrorist are beheading little children, dictators slaughtering tens of thousands of their own people, burying them in mass graves. We read in newspapers and on blogs of child slavery that affects millions of children, school shootings, diseases that claim tens of millions through horrific deaths. Every day a friend is telling us crimes such as murder and rape that have taken place. Then, we think of historical persons like Hitler who killed over six millions Jewish persons, as well as hundreds of thousands of Christians, we can only ask but one question. IF GOD IS GOOD, Why Does God Allow Suffering? 

Are we not tired of the books on this subject offering philosophical arguments, theological ramblings that would take a Ph.D. to understand them? Many have found no satisfactory answer. Therefore, they have lost faith in God. Andrews offers his readers very straightforward, biblically accurate explanations for these difficult questions. Why does God allow suffering, why is life so unfair? Does God step in and solve every problem because we are faithful? Why do we see some Christian leaders saying God miraculously saved some young girl from cancer while hundreds of thousands of others are left to die? Does God provide absolutes or guarantees in this age of imperfect humanity? Does Satan the Devil really exist? How are we to understand divine foreknowledge and human freedom? If any have had such questions, without a doubt, they will be very interested in the Bible’s answers to these and far more in this easy to read publication.
