Book Review: A General Introduction to the Bible by Geisler and Nix

I'll keep this review short and sweet.

This is a textbook. It is straightforward in its approach with little flourish or fanfare. It lays out the facts and gives proofs for what it proposes.

That being said, it is a book that everyone could make use of. Particularly those with children who face years of skepticism and polemics in their school systems concerning Christianity in general and the Bible in particular.

This book covers a wide range of bible-related topics; from the inspiration of scripture to the writing materials used in transmission.

Although it is a textbook (why does that sound pejorative), I don't mean to suggest it was boring. It was very interesting and helpful and it will be a reference I'm sure I will use in the future.
