SCROLLS & STONES: Compelling Evidence the Bible Can Be Trusted

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?

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
•  Questions for further reflection and small group discussion

Many teens growing up in Christian homes have not been exposed to the wealth of evidence and good arguments for God’s existence and the trustworthiness of the Bible. Under-equipped and weak in their faith, many young adults walk away from the Christian faith after they move out of the house, if not before. ABR hears this sad story over and over from heartbroken parents. Well, we would love to help prevent this from happening to your son or daughter. Charlie Campbell, the founder of ABR, has developed a “Youth Apologetics Course” that will help EQUIP your son or daughter to STAND STRONG in the truth and “contend earnestly for the faith” (Jude 3). It consists of ten videos, two books, and a fill-in-the-blank workbook that your teen can watch, read, and go through at their own pace at home. Learn more here.
