Have you ever been asked why you believe the Bible is true? It might be that you’ve even asked yourself that question at some point. It’s a question that I’ve asked too! And it’s the question that I set out to answer in Why Should I Trust the Bible? The purpose of this book is simple: I show that it isn’t irrational to believe the Bible is trustworthy and that, in fact, there are many reasons why someone might reasonably believe that the Bible is wholly and completely true. Best of all, you can download a free curriculum that will equip you to teach these truths in your local church or in a study group, even if you’re struggling to answer this question yourself.

Here’s what a few trusted individuals had to say after reading Why Should I Trust the Bible?:
“With humility, wit, and compelling research Timothy Paul Jones masterfully answers the question: ‘Why would any reasonable person in the twenty-first century trust that the Bible is true?'” (Jamaal Williams, D.Ed.Min., lead pastor, Sojourn Church Midtown).
“As a cold-case detective, I especially appreciate the work that Dr. Timothy Paul Jones has done in Why Should I Trust the Bible? This powerful book is a concise, accessible and evidentially powerful resource for believers and seekers alike” (J. Warner Wallace, Senior Fellow at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, Adjunct Professor of Apologetics at Biola University, and author of Cold-Case Christianity).
“This is Timothy Paul Jones at his best. Witty. Transparent. Always wrestling with the hardest of questions while holding out the faith once for all delivered to the saints” (Dan DeWitt, Ph.D., associate professor of apologetics, Cedarville University and author of Life in the Wild).
