The Poached Egg ApologeticsInfidelity and skepticism abound everywhere. In one form or another they are to be found in every rank and class of society. Thousands are not ashamed to say that they regard the Bible as an old obsolete Jewish book, which has no special claim on our faith and obedience, and that it contains many inaccuracies and defects. In a day like this, the true Christian should be able to set his foot down firmly, and to render a reason of his confidence in God’s Word. He should be able by sound arguments to show good cause why he thinks the Bible is from heaven, and not of men. – J.C. Ryle

The Poached Egg ApologeticsThe Bible stands apart from all other books, and has survived and will survive all the attacks of its enemies. It is like the electric torch that shines over the water of New York Bay, struck by the wing of many a seabird that dashes against it in its reckless flight, but still shining on unmoved while the foolish and reckless assailant falls bleeding and wounded at its feet. It is an anvil which has worn out many a hammer of hostile criticism, while the anvil still remains unshaken amid the wreck of all that have assailed it. – A. B. Simpson

The Poached Egg ApologeticsI have examined all religions, as well as my narrow sphere, my straightened means, and my busy life, would allow; and the result is that the Bible is the best Book in the world. It contains more philosophy than all the libraries I have seen. – John Adams

The Poached Egg ApologeticsTo stay away from Christianity because part of the Bible’s teaching is offensive to you assumes that if there is a God he wouldn’t have any views that upset you. Does that belief make sense? If you don’t trust the Bible enough to let it challenge and correct your thinking, how could you ever have a personal relationship with God? In any truly personal relationship, the other person has to be able to contradict you. – Timothy Keller

The Poached Egg ApologeticsNot believing in God because you find the contents of the Bible offensive is like saying that you don’t believe in George Lucas because you didn’t like Star Wars.  – G.S. West

The Poached Egg ApologeticsI know of no finding in archaeology that’s properly confirmed which is in opposition to the Scriptures. The Bible is the most accurate history textbook the world has ever seen. Dr. Clifford Wilson (archaeologist)

Free

The Poached Egg ApologeticsThe Bible has, amazingly— no doubt with supernatural grace—survived its critics. The harder tyrants try to eliminate it and skeptics dismiss it, the better read it becomes. Chuck Colson

The Poached Egg ApologeticsI read Genesis 1 for the first time when I was seventeen, in the midst of a personal study of the holy books undergirding the world’s major religions. While I began
with some degree of certainty that God exists—because of the way the universe began and was structured—I assumed all the holy books would prove to be humanly crafted frauds. My aim was to confirm this belief by identifying provable errors and contradictions within those books. The task seemed relatively easy—until I came up against the Bible.
– Dr. Hugh Ross

The Poached Egg ApologeticsHere, then, is the real problem of our negligence. We fail in our duty to study God’s Word not so much because it is difficult to understand, not so much because it is dull and boring, but because it is work. Our problem is not a lack of intelligence or a lack of passion. Our problem is that we are lazy. – RC Sproul

The Poached Egg ApologeticsThe evidence for our New Testament writings is ever so much greater than the evidence for many writings of classical authors, the authenticity of which no-one dreams of questioning. And if the New Testament were a collection of secular writings, their authenticity would generally be regarded as beyond all doubt. It is a curious fact that historians have often been much readier to trust the New Testament than have many theologians. – F. F. Bruce

The Poached Egg ApologeticsThere is such a down to earth honesty in the New Testament writings. My favorites are Paul rebuking Peter openly then afterward he said one should first rebuke another privately and there is Paul and Barnabus splitting up because they couldn’t agree about Mark. These were real people with real victories, defeats and weaknesses like ourselves. They did not make things up because they loved the truth and most died for telling. – Robert Mallord

The Poached Egg ApologeticsThe Bible was inscribed over a period of 2000 years in times of war and in days of peace By kings, physicians, tax collectors, farmers fishermen, singers and shepherds. The marvel is that a library so perfectly cohesive could have been produced by such a diverse crowd over a period of time which staggers the imagination. Jesus is its grand subject, our good is designed and the glory of God is its end. – Casting Crowns
