Underlying patterns in the Bible that indicate its inspiration.
As modern days go by, the ancient book we know as the Bible continues to endure sharp criticism. Appreciation for the Bible has perhaps reached its lowest point, illustrated by the fact that it is completely ignored by most contemporaries as significant for history, science, and even sometimes theology. In many circles it is treated as a non-entity.
Even where the Bible is acknowledged it is merely awarded the status of a benign devotional book, deemed almost mythical in content. It has been shredded to pieces by the documentary hypothesis, its early chapters dismissed by evolutionary thinking, and its contribution to science and history almost entirely discounted by the scholarly field.
Yet, as a certain poet has written, the anvil of God‟s word has worn out many hammers. It has outlasted its critics for centuries and I predict that it will ultimately survive the current and future attacks on its validity.
