BOOK REVIEW: Has God Spoken?

Has God Spoken?
Proof of the Bible's Divine Inspiration

Have you ever wondered whether or not God REALLY spoke the Bible into being?  What types of proofs are there?  Can it really be proven? What about all the evidence to the contrary?  Using the acronym M-A-P-S in his book Has God Spoken?, Mr. Hanegraaff (also known as the Bible Answer Man) puts forth massive amounts of evidence that yes, God really did speak to us through the Bible. 

Here's a sneak peek:  the M in M-A-P-S stands for Manuscript C-O-P-I-E-S, each letter broken down into sub chapters such as Copyist Practices, Oral Culture, Papyrus and Parchment, Internal Evidence, External Evidence and Science of Textual Criticism.  Mr. Hanegraaff goes in depth in all areas, for instance citing under External Evidence the works of Flavius Josephus (the Jewish history), Cornelius Tacitus (born twelve or so years after Christ's death and known as the "greatest historian of the ancient Roman Empire") and Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus (chief secretary to the Emperor Hadrian, who covered Roman history) to name a few.  All of the evidence presented in the book is fascinating proof of the divine inspiration of the Bible.

I accepted Christ as a young child and have never had the problem of accepting as fact that God is real, that He is the author of the Bible.  However, it is so much fun and so very interesting to sit and read a book such as this and find evidences that go beyond blind faith.  If you are a Christian, you will enjoy the evidence presented.  If you are not a Christian and you have a chance to read this book, Mr. Hanegraaff's evidence just might convince you to change your mind!  Why not give it a shot?

This is definitely another book I will keep in my personal library for future reference and also for loaning to friends and family.
