All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

Not Just Another Book!

The Bible is under attack. Multitudes of books, reports, and news casts call into question everything we thought we knew about the Bible. How can we begin to address all these claims and questions?...

Skeptics and Scholars

    How can you know it's God's word?

    It's merely the writings of people.

    The Bible has been changed over time.

    Parts of the Bible were discarded.

    Missing books of the Bible have been found

    Science has shown the Bible to be obsolete.

    Parts of our Bible are additions that don't belong.

    There's thousands of contradictions in the ancient manuscripts that have been found.

    Translations have altered the Bible

Cults and World Religions

    It's no different than our religious book.

    Our book is a continuation of it.

    Our book is from another prophet.

    God must be called Jehovah; you've translated Scriptures wrong.

    The Bible is not truth.


    Only our translation is perfect.

    Our translators were inspired by God.

    Other translations are from Satan.

    Our translation is better than all before it.

    It was good enough for the Apostle Paul, it's good enough for me.

    Your translation has left out important parts of God's Word.


    We wrote the Bible and we can add to it.

    We have more books than you do.

    We have less books than you do.

    Tradition is equal to Scriptures

    Tradition clarifies Scriptures.

    God needs to be called Yahweh. Old translations have it wrong.

    Some passages are more important than others.

    All tradition is good

    All tradition is bad

    Creeds are bad

Christian Mystics

    We have secret knowledge of what the Bible really teaches.

    I had an experience that revealed new truth.

    God revealed this to me.

    I am a prophet, you must listen to me.

    I am an apostle of God, you must obey me.

Popular Culture

    The church has covered up the truth.

    The Bible is just a story book.

    I can experience God apart from any book.

    Anyone can interpret the Bible to make it say anything they want.

    Hidden messages and prophecies are concealed in Bible Codes.

Not Just Another Book, the live seminar, offers biblical and scholarly answers to these questions, and more, in an informative, interactive, and visual manner. Designed especially for believers, it not only strengthens their faith, but also provides them with answers. When believers are armed with answers they are less likely to fall prey to the cults at their door and religions selling another gospel -- even when that religion is disguised as modern scientific or scholarly thought.

Now includes expanded sections showing how cults and world religions view God and the Bible. In the face of postmodern thought, it also answers the question: What is Truth?

"If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."

John 8:31b-32

Why is it important to trust the Bible? Without it, or if it is less than a perfect revelation, we would never be able to know the one true and perfect God! Through this Divine revelation, we have been given God's message of salvation, without which the whole world would be without hope. It shouldn't surprise us that the Devil, whose only weapons are lies and deception, would attack the very foundation of our knowledge of God. The success of this tactic, in modern times, is borne out by statistics showing that former church attenders are those most likely to convert to Islam, Mormonism, the Jehovah's Witness or to outrightly abandon the church for rational skepticism or neo-paganism.

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Matthew 24:35

All materials are specially mounted for public display.

Can you, and the teens and adults in your church, answer questions about all the books bordering this page? Which are good? Which are bad? Which are better? How can you tell the difference? Most of all, how did we get our Bible, what makes it different, and can we trust that it is God's Holy Word? It's time to spend some time learning how to defend our faith!


Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints.

Jude 3

Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.

John 17:17

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned!

Galatians 1:6-8

For the word of the Lord is right and true; he is faithful in all he does.

Psalms 33:4
