Product Details

This comprehensive volume offers you clear and concise answers to every major Bible difficulty from Genesis to Revelation, staunchly defending the authority and inspiration of Scripture.

  • Critical commentary on the whole Bible
  • Apologetics text
  • Bible difficulties reference
  • Theology manual (treating important doctrines)
  • Handbook on verses misused by cults

These friendly features of When Critics Ask will enable you to more readily give a defense for the hope that is within you.
