Book Review: Peter A. Lillback & Richard B. Gaffin - Thy Word Is Still Truth (sample) book was one of two samples I have read lately. I received the first 103 pages of the book and it was enough to see that it would be a good read.

Here Lillback and Gaffin have assembled articles and sermons from hundreds of years of Church History concerning the Word of God. The sample I read had pieces from Martin Luther, Zwingli and Henry Bullinger, but the table of contents shows they take the reader all the way up to modern day. At over 1000 pages, you can see it is a gold mind of information. In the future I would like to read the whole thing. I enjoyed the read and see that it will have much to offer the Church.

So many in modern times have tried to dismiss the Bible as a man-made book that contains errors. Today, we need more defenders of inerrancy. It seems we have given ground to the skeptic not because there is no defense, but because we have become lazy or are scared of ridicule.

This book shows us that throughout the history of the Church, great men have stood up and proclaimed the truth about God's word. Each selection fits well with the theme of the book. There is just enough in each article to give you a good taste of the theology of each theologian or preacher.

I recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars. For some, it may be a little tough to read because of the technical nature, but it is well worth the effort.

I received this book, free of charge, from P&R Publishing Company and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
