In a world where the veracity of the Old Testament is increasingly questioned, "DEFENDING OLD TESTAMENT AUTHORSHIP: The Word of God Is Authentic and True" serves as a timely and rigorous answer to skeptics and critics alike. This comprehensive volume not only dismantles higher criticism's skeptical claims about the Old Testament but also provides compelling evidence for its historical, theological, and moral integrity.


Staring Down Higher Criticism


The book begins by dissecting the rise and influence of higher criticism, from the late dating theories of Julius Wellhausen to the unfounded assumptions of multiple authors based on language and style. With surgical precision, the work exposes the flaws, biases, and intellectual pitfalls of this critical approach, revealing its speculative nature and the erosion it causes to Biblical authority.


A Book-by-Book Defense


Following the introduction, the book undertakes a chapter-by-chapter defense of individual Old Testament books, refuting arguments against their authenticity, authorship, and dating. From the Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch to the historical reliability of the Books of History, from the wisdom literature to the Prophets, each chapter serves as a fortress of facts, standing firm against the tide of criticism.


Special Features


In addition to its primary content, the book also features an invaluable appendix addressing various Bible difficulties. This section offers practical principles for overcoming apparent contradictions, mistakes, and scientific errors in the Bible, thereby reinforcing the inerrancy and trustworthiness of Scripture.


An Authoritative Reference


Written with scholarly depth and accessible language, this book serves as an authoritative reference for pastors, seminary students, Bible scholars, and anyone committed to defending the reliability of the Old Testament. Prepare to have your faith fortified and your understanding deepened as you discover why the Word of God is, indeed, authentic and true.


"DEFENDING OLD TESTAMENT AUTHORSHIP" is more than a scholarly rebuttal; it's a clarion call to uphold the sanctity and truth of Jehovah's Word in an age of skepticism.
