- Charles Spurgeon

“Inspiration – the process by which God directed individuals, incorporating their abilities and styles, to produce His message to humankind.”
- J. Scott Duvall and J. Daniel Hays 

“The Bible contains truth found nowhere else. Human reason may discover certain truths about God. But the revealed truth of the Bible exceeds these so as to defy comparison. One may exhaust the meaning of the contents of other books, but not that of the Bible.”
- Herschel Hobbs

“The canon is not an authorized collection of writings (in that the church conferred its authority or approval upon a list of books). Rather, the canon is a collection of authoritative writings… that have an inherent authority as works uniquely inspired by God. Canonization is the process of recognizing that inherent authority, not bestowing it from an outside source.”
- Robert Plummer

“The Bible is a supernatural, spiritual, sovereign, surviving, sustaining, super-charged book about my Savior.”
- Adrian Rogers

Precious Bible! What a treasure
Does the Word of God afford!
All I want for life or pleasure,
Food and Medicine, shield and sword;
Let the world account me poor—
Christ and this, I need no more.
- John Newton

“Trusting testimony is not an irrational act of faith that leaves critical rationality aside; it is, on the contrary, the rationally appropriate way of responding to authentic testimony. Gospels understood as testimony are the entirely appropriate means of access to the historical reality of Jesus.”
- Richard Bauckham

“Even as a mighty cathedral would be unduly darkened and underappreciated if illuminated by only one pinhole window, so too the intricacies and beauty of God’s revelation in Jesus the Christ deserve a flood of light from all sides of the building. Our four Gospels all open onto the same inner sanctum and altar, but with different and complementary angles of light.”
- Jonathan Pennington

“The New Testament is filled with accounts of miracles that Jesus performed during the course of his ministry. Scientific mistrust of the Bible began with the Enlightenment belief that miracles cannot be reconciled to a modern, rational view of the world. Armed with this presupposition, scholars turned to the Bible and said, “The Biblical accounts can’t be reliable because they contain descriptions of miracles.” The premise behind such a claim is “Science has proven that there is no such thing as miracles.” But embedded in such a statement is a leap of faith. It is one thing to say that science is only equipped to test for natural causes and cannot speak to any others. It is quite another to insist that science proves that no other causes could possibly exist.”
- Tim Keller

“If Christianity is false it cannot be saved by theology, if it is true it cannot be destroyed by science.”
- E.Y. Mullins

“When we come to the Bible and try to listen to its claims, we can easily misjudge those claims if we hear them only from within the framework of our own modern assumptions. Letting the Bible speak for itself, that is, letting it speak in its own terms, includes letting the Bible speak from within its own worldview rather than merely our own.”
- Vern Poythress

“The Bible is the Word of God given in the words of people in history.”
- George Eldon Ladd

    Thanks for this. I would also recommend a DVD by Dr. Dan Wallace, “Is the Bible we read now what they read then.” It’s excellent and overwhelmingly persuasive.
