The long war on God's word continues unabated. In recent decades there has been a rising tide of attacks on the Bible. Has the text of the Old Testament Scriptures been corrupted through the centuries? Do "other gospels" give us a truer picture of Jesus than the New Testament? In this conference, three well-qualified scholars offer instruction in a highly accessible manner to help you understand the basis for the reliability of the Bible.
