What if someone were to ask you, “How do you know those are the right 66 books in the Bible?”

How would you answer?

An exciting, new four-part video series, featuring British author and conference speaker Brian Edwards,* answers this and numerous other common questions about God’s Word.

In an entertaining and informative style, Edwards traces the story of the Bible and explains the reasons why we can be certain about its accuracy and authority. Along the way, he sprinkles his teaching with gold nuggets that will astonish you.

The first DVD, Scripture under Scrutiny, introduces the uniqueness of the Bible. Written over a period of sixteen hundred years by some forty different people, this one-of-a-kind Book miraculously tells one unfolding story and has one ultimate Author—God Himself.

Edwards explains what the Bible says about its own authority and accuracy, and then he shows how archaeology demonstrates the trustworthiness of the biblical record.

We can be confident that we have the sixty-six writings God intended to be in our Bibles, no more or less.

Why 66? combats the sloppy and inaccurate claims of those who say that the Bible was not inspired by God and cannot be trusted. Edwards lays out the reasons—from history, prophecy, and theology—we can be confident that we have the sixty-six writings God intended to be in our Bibles, no more or less.

The Life of William Tyndale moves to the thrilling story of the Bible’s translation. Edwards retells the dangerous days of the early Reformation, when William Tyndale longed to make the Bible accessible and understandable to the English-speaking masses. Tyndale achieved his goal, but he paid for it with his life. Ironically, the same king of England who sentenced Tyndale to be burned at the stake later approved that his translation be placed in every church in England.

This series ends with The Authentic Christ, an inspiring look at Acts 4:12: “There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Jesus of Nazareth was a real historical figure, whose life was promised throughout the Old Testament and carefully recorded by eyewitnesses in the New Testament. The ultimate question is “Will we accept by faith Jesus’s free gift of salvation?”

Complementing the DVD set is a study guide that will enrich your understanding or teaching of the material. The discussion and application questions will equip you to answer the most-asked questions about God’s Word, including ”How do you know the Bible is true?”
