Reasons for Believing the Bible to be the Word of God





Biblical Authority, Natural Theology

    The writer introduces a list of reasons and recommends that they be committed to memory. The list begins: '1. Because what we learn from the natural world of the existence, power, wisdom, and goodness of God, agrees with what the Bible states of them. 2. Because a book like the Bible was much needed to make the will of God more clearly known to man, than nature alone could do' (64).
