2015 Reading Book 8 – Unbreakable by Andrew Wilson
It stands out because unlike most other books on the Bible, it doesn’t start with a bunch of objections that people have to the scriptures. Nor does it begin with information about the Bible’s authors or the historical contexts they were writing into. Instead, this book uses Jesus as the starting point! As Andrew explains, ‘Ultimately… our trust in the Bible stems from our trust in Jesus Christ…’ If you are a follower of Jesus, then you’ll be keen to believe what the Bible says– because, as you’ll see in this book, that’s what Jesus did!
Andrew, in his clear and often amusing way, shows us clearly that the Son of God loved and trusted the Word of God – and if anyone sets out that the Bible is trustworthy, authoritative, good, helpful and powerful… then it’s Jesus Himself!
This is a little gem of a book. It is about 60 pages long, with very short chapters. It is easy to dip in and out of. Wilson is clear and concise – and funny. This book looks at what Jesus said about the Bible. It is a great introduction to looking at Jesus and looking at the Bible. This is a helpful book that I will be going back to many times.
