Chapter 4: Hebrew Bible.   I mostly read Christian Fiction (fantasy, fairy tale, historical, dystopian, and sometimes contemporary), though I sometimes find myself engrossed in clean mainstream YA novels. I also try to read some Christian Living books, and the Bible is a part of my daily reading. Since Dec Blog

      About 10 or so years ago, I had a crisis of faith (for lack of a better term) in which I examined, as you are doing, everything I had been taught in comparison to the Bible and Church history. As a direct result of my study (which went on for a couple of years), I now disagree with many things I was taught (in my conservative Protestant. An overview of this book’s proof of the Bible’s validity An incorrect answer to the question, Is the Bible Fact or Fiction?, produces an inevitable domino-like crash to every belief about God and spiritual truth. Belief in God’s creation, God’s nature, and God’s judgment stands or falls with the validity of the Bible.

    The term Bible fiction refers to works of fiction which use characters, settings and events taken from the degree of fictionalization in these works varies and, although they are often written by Christians or Jews, this is not always the case.. Originally, these novels were consistent with true belief in the historicity of the Bible's narrative, replete with miracles, and God's. If we want to exercise biblical faith--Christian faith--then we ought first to find out how the Bible defines faith. The clearest definition comes from Hebrews If you think faith is mere fantasy and science is complete fact, well then, fantasy conflicts with fact, doesn’t it?

The Bible is true. It all happened. NOT fantasy. Not fiction. REALLY Happened. Jesus came to die for US. So that we can go to Heaven. John.

God loves us enough that He would send his Son to die for us. Josephus, a first-century Jewish historian, acknowledged that the Hebrew Bible consisted of 22 books—essentially the same text which, divided differently, forms the 39 books of our modern Old Testament—and that these books "have all been accepted as canonical from time immemorial" (ibid., p.

61). The fact that 22 books of the Old Testament. Is the Bible just a collection of myths and legends, or is it the inspired word of God.

Many assume that modern scholarship has discredited the Bible, but the facts of history — and the discoveries of archaeology — confirm its contents to be true. The Bible recounts the past with amazing accuracy — and it predicts the future like no other book.

Most of the world has been misled and. (shelved 2 times as faith-based-fiction) avg rating — 19, ratings — published The Bible is based on fact, fiction, and fantasy. I've been pondering a poll that Gallup published, stating that "one-third of Americans think that the Bible is literally true." "About one-third of the American adult population believes the Bible is the actual word of God and is to be taken literally word for word.".

Remember, the Bible is not just one book; it is a collection of 66 books, written by more than 40 different authors over a period of 1, years. Subsequent sections contain messages that relate to the topics of fact, faith, and experience. The final message, “The Two Sides of the Truth—Subjective and Objective,” provides a fitting conclusion to this compilation of messages by illustrating the balance that is struck in our Christian life when objective facts contained in the Word.

If we really want to know if Jesus is fact or fiction, we must first know if the source for information about the life of Jesus can be trusted. The experts who actually do the research on these historical documents have come up with some amazing discoveries about this book known as the Bible.

Is the Bible Fact or Fiction. This is one of the most common questions I get asked as an archaeologist and it is one for which I have yet to find a good answer. And yet the question is at the absolute heart of archaeology, central to the growth and development of archaeology, and it is the one that gets more archaeologists into trouble than any.

Bible:  Fact, Fiction, or Fantasy. “No other book [Bible] is more simple in its style than the Bible. Its style is so simple and clear that a child can understand it, but its truth is so profound that we can explore the Book from childhood to old age and can never say we have reached the bottom.” ~ R.

Torrey. Most Christians find that reading the books not only brings them closer to God, but it is an enjoyable and entertaining activity. If you want to rejuvenate your faith journey, ease your way into reading the Bible, or simply find out about the Bible’s best verses, try these books this year.

More women read the Bible than men. According to a study by the American Bible Society, women are 20% more likely to read the holy book than men. There are songs in the Bible.

According to the Overview Bible Infographic, Nearly 85% of the songs in the Bible are in the book of Psalms. Throughout the rest of the Old and New.

Please keep the facts or don’t teach at all. The punishment for adding or taking away from the scriptures is this: Revelation “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”.

Should Christians avoid fantasy literature. I'm a teen girl who loves this genre, especially the works of C. Lewis, J. Tolkien, and George MacDonald. But recently I stumbled across an article that has caused me to wonder whether I've been mistaken in this regard.

The author said that Christian fantasy/fiction is an "oxymoron." To prove his point, he quoted I Timothy and said that. Each book you write in the series gets a colour. When you first start working on your series bible, this will look strange, since almost everything at the start will be one colour as you work on the first book.

But no worries, everything will work out as you go on. Here’s an example: Book 1, Book 2, Book 3, Book 4, Book. Sci-Fi/Fantasy Christian Fiction is not often heard of or well advertised in the book community. It is one of those rare but interesting sub-genres.

Christian Sci-Fi/Fantasy fiction have Christian elements woven into imaginative and futuristic storylines. It is one sub-genre that I need to read more of! I think it's also one of those more fun.

By that, we do not mean that the Bible is untrue. We mean that the Bible sometimes uses literature that would fall into the category of fiction to relate truth; stated otherwise, the Bible contains examples of storytelling.
