Review of “Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions” by Ken Ham

Demolishing Supposed Bible Contradictions” is an excellent, true-to-the-Bible, resource for Christians seeking to grow in Bible knowledge, deepen their faith in the truth of God’s Holy Word, encourage other Christians, teach their children or reach out to the confused or the lost.

If part of the Bible isn’t true, then none of it is true. We can be assured of this because, by His very nature, God cannot lie. Therein lies the importance of this work. Ken Ham has delved into oft-asked questions about supposed contradictions in the Scriptures and has answered them soundly, wisely and well. Whether you are curious about how Judas really died, if Noah confused a bat for a bird or how old Ahaziah when he began his reign, this is the book for you.

One of the lovely qualities of this book is its gentle sense of humor: the chapters have titles like “As Easy as Pi”, “Bats of a Feather” and “Dead Man Writing”; another is that it is easy to understand. More important, however, is that it is true to Scripture. Ken Ham holds God and His Word in high esteem and it shows in his careful examination of the texts he explores.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Something I find extremely valuable about this book is the way that it so deftly handles the matter of Christ’s deity and His humanity. Ken Ham gives us the tools we need to fight against the view that Jesus is inferior to His Father (He was inferior only in His human form; in His deity, He is equal).

This book is a worthwhile read and a very welcomed and valuable resource. For this homeschooling Mom, it has earned an honored spot on our bookcase and will be referred to often. On the cover, this book says it is “Volume 1”; I’ll be waiting expectantly for “Volume 2”.

I received a free copy of this book from New Leaf Publishing for purposes of review. I was not required to give a positive review, simply an honest one.

    1. Thank you. I think that this book would do fine as part of an adult Bible study, in fact I know of others who have used it that way. Each chapter is just a few pages long so you would need to either cover more than one chapter or go in-dept in discussion. Going over this book would definitely strengthen your knowledge of the Word of God and would therefore be of great benefit.

  1. Our Life Group gets into deep discussions and does a bunch of cross-referencing in the Bible, so that might be a good thing. Thank you, and I will mention this book to the group. 8^)
