You can believe the Bible. Without any doubt. As American society becomes more secularized, Christians need to know all the facts about the Bible. Dr. Grant R. Jeffrey has spent decades researching history, science, archaeology, medicine, and prophecy - finding that each discipline confirms the truth of Scripture.
This revised and updated edition of The Signature of God proves that the Bible is not only accurate in its spiritual claims, but is completely reliable as well on matters of origins, medicine, history, and science. Historians of the ancient world - as well as recent archaeological finds - confirm the names of kings and kingdoms, and the dates of wars and mass migrations mentioned in the Bible. Recent breakthroughs in astronomy, physics, and medical science have shown that God’s Word accurately described the universe and the processes of human life long before scientific research caught up. And hundreds of fulfilled prophecies show that God revealed the future to his prophets in order to undergird the faith of his people.
No matter how loudly the skeptics argue against Christian faith, only one conclusion makes sense: the Bible is God-breathed. You can believe every word, every claim, every prophecy, and every miracle. With no doubts.

You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ― C.S. Lewis
A very well compiled argument for the existence of the God of the bible. The only thing I didn't like about the book was the narration. I find Grant Jeffery's voice hard to follow at times. I had run across a lot of this info before from other sources but I still remember the goosbumps they gave me. A must read for anyone wanting to know the truth.
This book does a great job showing the proof of the Bible from within the Bible and also from "extra" biblical sources. For those that may be on the fence.....this may be a book that can open your eyes to the Bible and prayerfully salvation, and a relationship with Jesus Christ.
The first half of the book sets out the most prevalent rationale adopted by questioning Believers to bolster their faith or assuage their doubts. Jeffrey does a better job than many evangelists of mentioning problems with his arguments that still cause debate among scholars, but he omits a whopper. Particularly weak for a book alleging to offer "proof" is his unspoken premise that the Synoptic Gospels are completely reliable and therefore substantiate prior prophecy - only to loop back using substantiate prophecy as "proof". In a book with this agenda, he must consider whether the Synoptics were specifically written to make it appear that prior prophecy had been fulfilled and respond to those critics. He is silent.The second half of the book deteriorates into the author's personal apocalyptic interpretation of Scriptures and is not very convincing. Notice how the authors mentions that there are thousands of fulfilled prophecies, then mentions that there are hundreds, then says there are many, and finally just explains in detail how a carefully chosen few (might) have been fulfilled if you think about them in just the right way.
This book is very well written. Unfortunately it gets into doctrine that is contrary to Catholic teaching. Therefore it limits its ability to be used by ALL Christians. For example, there is no need to go into whether Jesus did or did not have a brother. That is irrelevant to the message in this book and goes against the Virginity of our Mother Mary. I hope a future edition would be done so that it allows for ALL of us to learn from it and is based on the things that unite us but not include the things that separate us. We are all one body in Christ our Lord.
The voice took a while to get use to, but after I did, I enjoyed it. Most of it for me was review. Seems I heard a lot of these facts before, but there was plenty new ones. It's worth listening to again to become more familiar with it, which I intend to do.
