There were many grammatical errors and apparent typos which need to be fixed. I also disliked the explanation for the contradictions in the creation story.
The author of that section says that we are just assuming that science is right, but that we don't really know. I think this was a cheap explanation and would have liked to see something about how science can be reconciled with the story of Genesis. After all, the Bible never says that evolution DIDN'T happen, and I believe that it very well could have been part of God's creative process and just not explained in detail in the Bible because the process by which God created the universe has no bearing on the purpose for which the Bible was written.
Mar 22, Anna Wood rated it it was amazing. If part of the Bible isn't true, then none of it is true. We can be assured of this because, by His very nature, God cannot lie. Therein lies the importance of this work. Ken Ham has delved into oft-asked questions abo "Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions" is an excellent, true-to-the-Bible, resource for Christians seeking to grow in Bible knowledge, deepen their faith in the truth of God's Holy Word, encourage other Christians, teach their children or reach out to the confused or the lost.
Ken Ham has delved into oft-asked questions about supposed contradictions in the Scriptures and has answered them soundly, wisely and well. Whether you are curious about how Judas really died, if Noah confused a bat for a bird or how old Ahaziah when he began his reign, this is the book for you. One of the lovely qualities of this book is its gentle sense of humor: More important, however, is that it is true to Scripture. Ken Ham holds God and His Word in high esteem and it shows in his careful examination of the texts he explores.
Something I find extremely valuable about this book is the way that it so deftly handles the matter of Christ's deity and His humanity. Ken Ham gives us the tools we need to fight against the view that Jesus is inferior to His Father He was inferior only in His human form; in His deity, He is equal. This book is a worthwhile read and a very welcomed and valuable resource. For this homeschooling Mom, it has earned an honored spot on our bookcase and will be referred to often.
On the cover, this book says it is "Volume 1"; I'll be waiting expectantly for "Volume 2". I received a free copy of this book from New Leaf Publishing for purposes of review. I was not required to give a positive review only a fair and honest one.
Jan 16, Adam Calvert rated it really liked it Shelves: After a great introduction, at first this book seemed pretty basic and kind of petty, seeming to take on "contradictions" that can only be based on the reading of the King James version of the Bible - e. God telling Adam and Eve to "replenish" the earth, p. Overall, this book is really great. The introduction is very helpful because it gives the reader basic principles to use when approaching seeming contradictions in the Bible.
The content then demonstrates those principles in practice. And at the end, the book acknowledges itself as an introduction to the subject. This work is not exhaustive although it does have "Volume 1" on the front cover, so I expect that more are coming , but it does give the reader a start on seeing how seeming contradictions can be cleared up pretty easily with a little more context, and with a proper approach to Scripture.
My only complaint is that the table contents doesn't give specific verse references, and there's not index either. So, it's great to read, but it's not the most accessible if you're looking for a specific verse. For an exhaustive one-volume reference, the Bible student might find Geisler and Howe's "The Big Book of Bible Difficulties" more helpful although, know going into it that Geisler is not a young-earth creationist.
But as an easy read, this work is by far a great resource. Mar 05, Jesse rated it did not like it. So, I won this book in a goodreads giveaway and finally finished it. I found it hard to get into, not because it was difficult to read, but because the tone is a little off-putting. The voice is certainly nonacademic, despite what the author may believe. I found too many exclamation points, too many glosses and slides, too many straw man arguments to be convinced by the arguments.
Many of them are solid, but simply because the "contradictions" the author "demolishes" are stupid. We gloss over au So, I won this book in a goodreads giveaway and finally finished it. We gloss over authorial intention, and the extremely difficult dichotomy that creates between human author and divine inspiration. We slide past the obvious follow-up questions.
Often the author is right because he only presents a tiny problem and immediately addresses it. At least once, he cites another book he has written as a source. There is an appendix from the website of something connected to the author at the end I'm not too sure what that sort of drives the book into the ground. I do not believe the writer was the author the book is Here we get a weird Holocaust analogy that flirts dangerously with some horrific implications--that lying to protect Jews is a sin, that there is perhaps a greater purpose to both the Holocaust in a general sense and in specific cases, that the Jews themselves should find salvation in Jesus It was really the unsavory dessert to what was until then a harmless but not delicious meal.
Dec 28, Tintinrulz rated it really liked it. There are two volumes in this series. Herein, supposed Bible contradictions are challenged and found wanting. The introduction discusses the logical and psychological problems associated with so-called contradictions and how most objections to the Bible relate. The book looks at contradictions and the challenges they present: That a difference o "Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions: That a difference of sense or relationship can be an issue.
There's also the false dilemma and contextual considerations, sweeping generalisations and translational issues. There are contradictions of inference and factual contradictions and the fallacy of begging the question. Then there's the law of non-contradiction, which presents a problem for the non-Christian. All of these 'problems' are addressed in this biblically-sound, well-researched book.
The book does a great job doing what it was designed to do, but it's a rather dry read at times. Recommended, but maybe more as a reference book, rather than something to read from beginning to end. The book can be read online for free at the link below: Dec 20, Martha rated it liked it Shelves: It is divided into sections with contributing writers explaining each supposed Biblical contradiction. Some of the explanations were already known by me but I could see where a new Christian or a non-Christian who is looking for answers would benefit.
Some were interesting, "OK that makes sense!

You'll have to visit their website to learn more about them. I look forward to reading it when I receive it. This was a very interesting book to read. I learned of some supposed inconsistencies that I had never even thought about as inconsistencies; they seem to be last ditch efforts of people who would do anything to try to prove the Bible is wrong. On the other hand, I myself have seen things that do not make sense to me and do appear to be inconsistent, at least on the surface.
I appreciated the explanations and information to explain these. Sometimes original language was looked at, many times othe This was a very interesting book to read. Sometimes original language was looked at, many times other passages of the Bible were applied, and often just basic logical reasoning was able to disprove the alleged inconsistency.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to dig deeper into the Bible and really understand it, and be able to support and defend it. A 2nd volume has recently been published, and I plan to purchase it. Dec 22, Terry Cave rated it liked it. A good concept, however I actually found the contradictions to be very very soft not the answers provided, but the actual contradictions. It saddens me to think that people actually put credibility to some of these so called contradictions.
I thought that the answers provided were great and should pretty much squash any thought that the Bible is not the inerrant word of God. Another quality product from Answers in Genesis. This books is excellent. I highly recommend it to Christians who have begun the path of witnessing to others. And I also highly recommend it to non-believers, who may have been told or who have assumed that the Bible has "contradictions. Dec 01, Marsha Nelson rated it it was amazing. Demolishing Contradictions was an easy to read book on the issues that people have with accepting the Bible.
I think that for believers, the contradictions are accepted on faith. I'm not sure you can convince a non-believer even with this credible information but I will try if given the challenge. Thank you for this interesting book. Dec 20, Michelle Dancer rated it did not like it. I would give this book a review, however, I have never recieved the book.
