Is the Bible Reliable? building the historical case from Tyndale Publishing is a 2-DVD and book set from the creators of Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project. This is the second set in the TrueU series. The DVDs include five hours of classroom lectures which covers 10 lessons on archaeological finds and how those finds correlate to events in the Bible, showing the Bible to be accurate and reliable through external corroboration. The book is a companion to the lectures and includes questions from the lectures, archaeological facts, photos of archaeological artifacts, interviews with archaeologists, a glossary for each chapter, lots of fun cartoons, and more. The lectures are given by Dr. Stephen Meyer. They are well delivered and filled with fascinating information. Meyer uses visuals and shows what we find in Scripture, and then shows external archaeological evidence that backs up the Bibles’ claims. Meyer delivers strong evidence that the Bible is reliable from an archaeological standpoint. The companion guide is meant to help guide you through the lectures. It does contain some facts and photos, but there’s not enough in it to use as a carry-with-me defender’s guide. The real strength in this series is the DVD lectures. You’ll want to watch it several times and I recommend taking notes to build your own defender’s guide. I recommend Is the Bible Reliable? DVD set, as I...Read More
1 & 2 Timothy and Titus is part of Tyndale’s Life Application Bible Studies series. It contains 13 lessons, study notes, and the complete NLT text for all three books. The study notes are from the Life Application Study Bible and include background, history, geography, and culture. The book begins with an introduction to the NLT. It then discusses the Life Application Study Bible and its features, explaining why it is unique in how it helps readers to apply God’s word to their lives including explanation (explaining the passage), the bridge (relevance for today), and application (applying the passage to your life). Next is the complete NLT text and notes for each of the three books. These look as if they’re taken directly from the Life Application Study Bible and include notes, references, maps, outlines, and more. This is a very easy text to read and the notes are thoughtful, applicable, and well-written. Next is a study guide. The study guide leads you in using the lessons. There are 13 lessons and they include topics such as leadership, building a strong foundation, prayer, training leaders, setting a good example, respecting others, money, character, devotion, being spiritual, building courage, etc. Each lesson is tied to a specific passage with notes and includes from 12 to 20 questions to answer. The questions are designed to make you think about the passages...Read More
Review by Randy A Brown of Studies In Scripture The Life Recovery Bible is a Bible with notes and features that are written specifically for people that are in need of recovery, or going through a recovery process. The notes are very applicable no matter what you are recovering from, including alcohol, drugs, or just about anything. It contains many articles and notes that are based on a 12-step recovery plan. The notes point out key elements from scripture that apply to the recovery process. It includes many helps and devotionals to build faith and confidence, and to help you understand your situation and how God can help you through it. The free review Bible I received from Tyndale is (roughly) 6.5 x 9.25 in hardcover. It is made well and is money well spent. The New Living Translation is very readable. I would recommend the NLT more for reading than study because it is a ‘thought for thought’ translation rather than a ‘literal’ translation, but as a reading Bible the NLT is great and it serves the purpose of this Bible well. The text is very easy to read, though it is not red-letter. I’m not sure, but it looks like maybe an 8 or 8.5 point font. It contains bold headings within the text, which are really nice. The features are what make this Bible really shine....Read More
