3.0 out of 5 stars It's big, but it's a little lacking 4 July 2011
By K. Moss
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this text having already purchased Hard Sayings of the Bible, thinking that it would be a helpful second strand to dealing with the kinds of hermeneutical conundrum that often gets thrown at one.

In fact, I have found that is the way to use it - as a second strand. The other volume, edited by FF Bruce, Walter C. Kaiser et al, is a more thorough resource. Whilst I have found Geisler & Howe useful, there have been simply too many occasions when it seemed to skate around the issue - or when, by means of a little contextual study, it was not difficult to identify a more reliable explanation of the text.

This has been a surprising conclusion, as I am generally very impressed with Norman Geisler's writing, which is thorough and thoughtful in its handling of difficult issues. This volume has the feel of having been rushed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book 3 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book offers explanations for all the discrepencies you find in the bible. However I found some a little inplausable and was able to offer a better explanation myself. It is for that reason I gave only four stars. It is nevertheless still a very useful book to have on the shelf .

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful tool 5 April 2010
I bought this book as a present to my girlfriend, and she's been very pleased with it. She didn't look much at it at first, but when she encountered a Bible difficulty (in Exodus, I think), she looked it up and found a plausible explanation. There are, however, still difficult texts that this book does not deal with. I guess there's no objective way of determining what makes a particular passage "difficult", and so it all comes down to the authors' determination. The book lacked some humility, in my opinion. I would've liked if the authors admitted that the Bible has a human element to it and is not considered "infallible" by the Christian community the same way way the Quran is considered "infallible" by the Muslims. It seems this book wants to persuade you into thinking the Bible simply dropped down from heaven.
