 Science Bible 282px

(DVD or On-Demand Video)
 by Charlie Campbell

Has the Bible been disproved by scientific discoveries? Is the Bible hopelessly out-of-date? Critics of Christianity say yes. But the evidence says no. In this 50-minute video, Charlie Campbell lays out a case for the scientific accuracy of the Bible by looking at several ancient revelations in the Bible that revealed amazing facts about the Earth and the universe thousands of years before the invention of telescopes, satellites, deep-diving submarines, and all the other technology that finally allowed scientists in the last century or two to verify these revelations were correct! This video will surely strengthen your confidence in the accuracy and trustworthiness of the Bible!

  Archaeology Bible 282px

(DVD or On-Demand Video) by Charlie Campbell

Is the Bible a collection of fables and myths? Are the persons, places, and events in the Bible just fabrications by deceitful men? Many critics of Christianity think so, but archaeological discoveries show otherwise. Over the past two centuries, archaeologists have made thousands of discoveries that have helped to verify the exact truthfulness of the Bible's detailed records of various events, customs, persons, cities, nations, and geographical locations. This DVD by Charlie Campbell will introduce you to several of these fascinating Bible-affirming finds, both old and new. Length: 53 minutes.

Bible Evidence 250px

SCROLLS & STONES: Compelling Evidence the Bible Can Be Trusted 
(Book) by Charlie Campbell

Can we trust the Bible? Isn’t the Bible just “ancient fiction” written by fallible, perhaps even deceitful men? Haven’t books of the Bible been lost and even tampered with down through the centuries? Isn’t the Bible out-of- sync with scientific discoveries? What about the apparent contradictions in the Bible? What makes the Bible any different than the Hindu Vedas, Quran, or Book of Mormon?  Charlie Campbell has been researching answers to questions like these for nearly twenty-five years. It was his initial research that led him to become a follower of Jesus in 1990. In Scrolls & Stones he shares some of the evidence that changed his mind back then but also fascinating new discoveries...all confirming the reliability of the Bible. You’ll learn about:

  • Extrabiblical Historical Sources that Verify Biblical Events
  • Scientific Discoveries
  • Archaeological Evidence
  • Fulfilled Prophecies
  • Ancient Scrolls and Manuscripts         
  • Answers to Skeptics’ Objections and Questions
  • And more!

Contains questions for further reflection and small group discussion. Also contains full subject index.

 Atheism evidence Jesus 282

(DVD or On-Demand Video) by Charlie Campbell

When it comes to Jesus, atheists commonly say:

  • There’s no credible evidence Jesus existed
  • The authors of the Gospels stole their ideas for Jesus’ life from other ancient religions
  • The earliest Christians didn’t believe Jesus was God
  • The Gospels contradict one another
  • There are scientific errors in the Gospels
  • The “Gospel of Thomas” and the “Gospel of Judas” give us a more accurate understanding of who Jesus was
  • Accounts of Jesus’ miracles are fabrications

Charlie Campbell, an author and Christian apologist, responds to these charges and lays out a compelling case that Jesus really did exist and the Gospels are trustworthy accounts of His life (52 minutes).

EVIDENCE FOR THE BIBLE (Part 2): An Examination of Apparent Contradictions in the Bible 
(DVD) by Charlie Campbell

After pointing out the apparent contradictions, Charlie demonstrates how the apparent difficulties are resolved and where the critics have erred. DVD length: 60 minutes This new edition was shot in a widescreen format and contains many of the images Charlie uses in his PowerPoint presentation.
