Some of the subject matter answers are debatable, especially if you belive in a very literal interpretation. It is well written and the authors expositions are clearly explained. Overall a good read and edifying.

Archer was a solid, conservative, Evangelical scholar. This work evidences his strong faith in the Bible as the word of God. It is similar in scope to "The Hard Sayings of the Bible" and is in its own way, nearly as good. The New International Encyclopedia of Biblical Difficulties has more of an Apologetics feel to it, whereas the Hard Sayings volume is more exegetical. Both approaches have their place. Archer's work is certainly worth purchasing and reading.

A very great help in the area of defending the preservation of the Scriptures. I was surprised to see that Archer did not base this book upon the AV1611. I exclusively use the KJV in my pulpit. A great resource for those already settled on which version to use!

This is one of the best resources you can have for serious Bible study. If you study the Bible for very long and in great detail you will encounter various texts that appear to be in error to modern theories or contradict other passages of Scripture. This book helps to clarify some of these passages. I was given this book after being beaten up by some Mormon elders concerning inerrancy. I was convinced (and still am) that the Bible is the Word of God without error or contradictions of any kind. This book helped to solidify my position and helped me answer some (not all) of Biblical passages that many see as errors in the Word of God.This is a great resource and a must have for those involved in cult evangelism or evangelism of any kind (Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 3:15; Jude 3).
