This review is from: The Story of the Bible: Unabridged (Audio CD)
A flawed resource- if you want clear and historical information on the Bible then don't buy this- it is a good summary of the atheistic and critical nature of works looking at the Bible. Using human reason as its main reference this work decides which bits to accept as accurate and which are not. So prophecies are all produced much later, the books are put together according to a much later date and the writers get lots of things wrong because of their limited world view. How can anyone decide that verses 3 and 8 are true and not verses 4-7? This work has bits of fact mixed with lots of subjective thinking- why does this CD believe that Genesis is by 3 different authors? Because the names given to God are different!! There is no thought as to the fact that names signify something and that names explain something about the expectations of the one who gives them the name and in the case of God in the the person who names themselves. They shall call his name Jesus for he shall save his people from their sins- Matthew 1:21 this shows that the name given to the child is significant- he shall be called Jesus- which means Saviour- thus he is to be a Saviour so when the Bible talks about Jesus they are pointing to a person who is a saviour and the rest of the verse explains what type of saviour he is to be- As the Bible states that there is only one, the Saviour, the LORD, and Jesus' life and miracles show him to be God the name is seen to be massively significant.
Some historical information is accurate but generally speaking the source is flawed as it assumes that the supernatural is not real- the Bible is about the God of the supernatural-

The critical historical method of Bible analysis criticised in this review is used virtually in every academic bible studies course in all major universities. Only fundamentalist evangelical preachers ignore academic developments which are academic consensus now.

An historical approach which takes seriously the documents and accounts of those witnesses at the time and around the time disagree with this viewpoint as does archaeological finds- an theory is a theory unless proven or disproven by evidence - just because every major university uses a method doesnt mean its true :)
