Deny that the Bible is, without any qualifications, the very Word of God, and you are left without any ultimate standard of measurement and without any supreme authority. In his book Divine Inspiration of the Bible, Arthur Pink aspires to defend the groundwork of Christianity - the Bible. Pink defines the Scriptures, or Word of God, as the foundation of the Christian religion. The Bible claims to be a divine revelation, and as such, it transcends human productivity. Pink's book examines the idea of divine inspiration and presents several arguments which aim to prove that God Almighty is the author of the Bible. As Christians, the Bible demands our attention, and Pink's book helps Christians gain a firmer understanding of the Bible's authority.

Evidence that Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell
No characters in this book but the reader did a good job
Yes, and easy to do.
Originally published in 1917, this book reads closer to a modern day primer on the topic of apologetics of the subject of The Bible. Pink offers proofs such as fulfilled prophecy, inner harmony, uniqueness, and even some presuppositional arguments. Pink definitely writes for a different time and his style isn't just cover topic A and here are six proofs. Written within each chapter is a Gospel call to the reader. So this feels more like an evangelical book than one on apologetics. As such, the tone is different than what you might have read in "The Sovereignty of God". If you've stepped into basic Christian apologetic readers before, there isn't much new here. However, Pink's style is very fluid and each pay cries out a Gospel plea of accepting Jesus Christ as God and Savior. Final Grade - B
If you are not a Believer a priori, then there is no utility from this book.
This is a three-hour orthodox evangelical sermon delivered in whispery, emotive tones. The author doesn't even bother to set up straw men about why the Bible might not be inspired and knock them down. He assumes we all agree within the first few pages that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, blah blah blah... and even says that the remainder of his book won't make sense unless one agrees that. Isn't that circular reasoning?
His two repeated assertions to prove divine inspiration are, "There is no other possible explanation for...", and "The only possible explanation is...". In fact, scholars have plenty of alternative explanations that I hoped the author would address. Very frustrating.
This books is only intended to assure the faithful that they can ignore any creeping doubts that might enter their minds.
