TrueU Is the Bible Reliable?


TrueU is an educational series geared towards college students and young adults. The question that is covered in this, the second of the TrueU series, is “Is the Bible reliable?” There are 10 thirty minute video presentations from Dr. Stephen Meyer that cover the evidence behind the reliability of the Bible. Each session presents the arguments against the reliability of the Bible and then states the reasons to believe that the Bible is historically accurate.


Dr. Meyer does an excellent job of presenting the information in a non-judgmental easy to understand fashion. The length of each session makes it more conducive to a class slightly longer than an hour, which might not fit in well with most church time restraints. The guide book is good for capturing the main points of the sessions. And the questions are geared towards getting the participants to a place where they will be able to use the information in a real life setting.



As far as an apologetics course, it is well done and educational. It is very academic in its approach. I would recommend this series for those looking for a way to discuss their faith with a world that is becoming increasing hostile towards the reliability of scripture. The videos are well done and very informative.



A free copy of this DVD curriculum was provided to me by Tyndale Blog Network.  I was not required to post a positive review.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
