There is a common assumption that the Bible is full of errors and contradictions, and that its often-unusual people and events render it useless for today. These ideas are fueled by the teachings of scholarly critics, who seem to delight in raising questions about the Bible s truthfulness and integrity.
But the critics of the Bible are wrong, according to Dr. R.C. Sproul in this Crucial Questions booklet. In fact, he says, there are many solid reasons to trust the Bible. With Jesus, with the apostles and prophets, and with men of God throughout church history, Dr. Sproul affirms a high view of Scripture–that it is inspired of God and therefore inerrant and infallible.

Perhaps you are going through a period when you did not feel the presence of God in your life. Maybe you feel like God has abandoned you. You desperately seek His presence, pray for it and cry out like David, “How long O Lord will you keep your presence from me?” Yet, He still seems distant. Like Job you cling to your faith. You know God promised to never leave you nor forsake you, so you, like many others, quietly keep these doubts, fears and questions to yourself. You fear Christians will question your faith, wonder what sin you committed and offer advice on par with Job’s friends. You wonder if you are the only one going through such an experience.
Even though I have written many books on God’s love and spent a minimum of three to four hours a day studying the Word of God in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic for over forty years, I went through such a dark period. I faced the questions of His existence and His love. I wondered if I were just playing some sick game with myself pretending to believe in a God of love. I started to keep a journal of my struggle. Based upon the belief that I was not the only believer going through such a dark night, I willingly share with you my journey. It is very personal and covers only the twelve most significant days. They are the twelve days when I climbed out of my darkness into the light of God.

“It’s a fascinating story, a story you really must know for yourself.”
The Prophets have spoken. It is wise to know what they said.
History is strewn with wars and scrapping over religion. With the advent of the global village, people of different beliefs are being pressed up against each other, and the potential for major conflict is enormous.
It behooves us to know what our neighbours believe and why they believe it. Though we may never agree with them, when we know what people believe, at the very least, we can intelligently disagree without being disagreeable.
All that the Prophets have Spoken is about the most widely distributed and most
vehemently disputed book in history— the Bible. If you are one of those who seriously wants to understand the message of the Prophets, then this book is for you.

Many of the problems plaguing the church today, such as apathy, conflict, spiritual pride, and spiritual abuse, stem from a poor understanding of who the church is in Christ and God’s purpose for her. Whenever we don’t understand the purpose of something, we are prone to misuse it. No doubt the newly founded churches in Ephesus and Asia Minor struggled with a lack of understanding as well and, therefore, were plagued with many of the same issues.
Paul wrote the letter to the Ephesians to help them grasp God’s great plan for the church. He calls many of these insights “mysteries”—truths not fully revealed to past generations, but now fully revealed to us. He describes the church as seated in the heavenly realms in Christ. She is one body—including both Jews and Gentiles. She is God’s temple and his masterpiece. She is the bride of Christ and a soldier fighting demonic forces. The more the church grows in her understanding of God’s great purpose for her, the more she will live it out and display his glory. Let’s study the letter of Ephesians together with The Bible Teacher’s Guide.

“Helpful to both the layman and the serious student, The Bible Teacher’s Guide, by Dr. Greg Brown, is outstanding!”
—Dr. Neal Weaver, President of Louisiana Baptist University
Hundreds of years before Christ’s birth, the people of Judah were in full rebellion. Influenced by the pagan culture surrounding them, the Israelites began to worship idols instead of the one true God. As their depravity grew and destruction loomed, a lone prophet was given an enormous task: call God’s people back to Him.
