Hank Hanegraaff's Book
Has God Spoken? uses a handy acronym "MAPS" to give evidence for divine origin of the Bible.
"M represents the strength of the manuscript itself as many actual fragments have been located
"A stands for the archaeological proofs that have been uncovered
"P is for the prophecy that has accurately predicted events
"S represents the scriptural synergy found in the unity, consistency, and harmony of the sixty-six books"
If you have someone who is questioning the veracity and authenticity of the Bible, this is the book for them. It is a very helpful book for apologetics that any Christian can use to have open and frank discussions with questioning individuals.
It is well written and follows logical arguments with invaluable proofs. Hank Hanegraaff does nothing half heartedly. This is a well researched book to help Christians give an answer for the faith. This book will empower, equip and encourage Christians to always be ready to give an answer to everyone who asks, to give the reason for the hope in Christ-with gentleness and respect as Christians are admonished to do in 1Peter 3:15.
Hank Hanegraaff can be heard on the Bible Answer Man radio program and has authored several books such as the Complete Bible Answer Book and The Prayer of Jesus. He is the president of the Christian Research Institute (website is www.equip.org )
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.
