The Bible is the best-selling and most widely-read book in all of history. But despite its enduring popularity, how are we to understand the claim that this book was actually written by God? Especially in an age of heightened historical and anthropological inquiry, when we know more than ever about the Bible's history as an artifact made of words and pages, how do we take seriously the idea that this book is also the Word of God?
In Did God Write the Bible?, Dan Hayden considers these questions. Starting at the place of his own conversion, Hayden's personal encounter with the Bible—independent of any church service or other religious activity—has forced him to acknowledge its power. In this thoughtful book, Hayden speaks to the many questions that arise when we accept the Bible as a unified voice that speaks with divine authority about the past, present, and future. In Part One, he examines the Bible itself, the claims it makes about its own authority, and the impact it has had on history. In Part Two, Hayden investigates the process of the Bible's creation, from revelation, inspiration, and the original words, to collection, transmission, translation and the other historical processes that have created the book we read today. Through all these steps, Hayden shows how God speaks consistently and powerfully through this amazing book.
Dan Hayden is the Director of Ministries and Instructor of Biblical Research and Education at Sola Scriptura, a teaching ministry in Orlando, Florida associated with The Scriptorium, a collection of rare biblical manuscripts and artifacts. Previously, Dr. Hayden has served as a youth minister, pastor, and camp director, as well as professor of pastoral ministries at two institutions of higher education.
