In the Good Question column, CHRISTIANITY TODAY reader Carol Stanley asks a question that all Christians face: “How can I be sure that the words in the Bible are really the words of God?” Theologian and one of CT’s executive editors J.I. Packer cites the witness of scribes, textual scholars, and God himself to ease Carol’s doubts. This study will draw from the Bible and church history to fill out Packer’s answer, helping group members to defend the Bible from critics and deepen their own understanding of Christianity’s sacred text.
