It’s hard to believe, but there are people who believe the Earth is flat. And some of them think the Bible supports this conclusion. Well, of course, they are mistaken. The articles below respond to their claims. But here are three quick points you can bring up when discussing this topic with people:

•  SHADOWS: The Earth’s roundness can be seen as a shadow on the moon during a lunar eclipse.
•  SPACECRAFT: We’ve all seen photos and videos of a spherical Earth taken from spacecraft circling the planet.
•  SHIPS: Even people in ancient times saw ships disappear over the horizon and knew (centuries before Columbus) that the Earth was round.

•  “The New Testament authors stole details for Jesus’s life story from religions that were around long before Christianity!”
•  “The God of the Old Testament commanded the Israelites to commit genocide!”
•  “The Bible condones slavery! Only evil, selfish men would concoct a book like that!”
•  “You think Christianity is true because you live in the West and were brought up in the Christian faith. If you had been born in India, you’d be a Hindu!”

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? 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, and a full subject index.

Is your teen prepared to survive college and a secular workplace with his or her faith still intact? Many teens are not. ABR has heard from so many parents whose kids have walked away from the Lord after heading off to college. And the parents consistently say, "We wish we would have done more to expose our kids to good Christian apologetics and evidences." You probably know the importance of apologetics. You want your kids to be prepared to stand against the onslaught of skepticism they will be confronted with in the world. But where does one begin? What subjects are the most important to address? What authors and resources can I trust? What resources will my teen be able to grasp and enjoy? If you’ve been wondering about these kinds of questions, ABR is excited to let you know that help has arrived.
