God Wrote a Book (review)

God Wrote a Book, by James McDonald
James McDonald is one of my favorite authors. He writes in a very understandable fashion, and seems very down to earth.

Summary: The Bible is God's word. Really. This book gives a brief, but very educated view of the Bible. It is written in such a way that a person who is totally "unchurched" could read it. In fact, I think that it is written specifically for that audience. It covers topics including, evidence for the Bible, a short history of the Bible, and the message/purpose of the Bible.

My Thoughts: I loved this book. I read it in one afternoon. I would absolutley recommend this book to anyone who is interested in solidifying their belief that the Bible is the Living Word of God.

But I would also recommend this book to anyone who is doubting the validity of the Bible itself. If anyone is thinking, why not the Koran, or some other book... Here is an excellent explaination.

It is written in such a way that any non-believer could pick it up, and at least... at the very least, see that believing the Bible is a valid conclusion.

Consider picking this book up. It would make a great addition to any Bible Scholar's library. And if you are here by accident, and you have wondered whether or not the Bible has anything to say to you, I would like to encourage you to read this book.

I want to give this book a high rating, but I haven't devised a rating system yet! So how about 4 stars! (out of 4, of course...)
