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.
