Episode Summary

Christians have banked their lives and eternity on this book being true. However, most Christians have no idea how to reasonably defend their belief. In this episode, we look at the logic behind the inerrancy of the Bible.

Sadly, the average Christian cannot explain why they put their trust in the Bible. So, how can followers of Christ offer a logical response for the spiritual trust in this Holy Book? In this episode, Dale and Veronica offer a reasonable and theological explanation for this common question.
