Whether you have doubts on if the Bible is true and divinely inspired, or simply want to learn more about the history of the Bible, then “Has God Spoken? Proof of the Bible’s Divine Inspiration” by Hank Hanegraaf is a great book for you.
The author uses acronyms throughout the book as a way to help you remember the answers to every myth and false idea addressed. To begin, he uses the word “MAPS” to stand for each of the 4 parts in the book:
In addition, each secondary word (i.e. “Manuscript C-O-P-I-E-S”) is an acronym itself and corresponds with the first letter of each chapter title. All these acronyms could be more trouble than their worth, but if you like them, this book is right up your alley!
As for the actual content of the book, I found it to be a very easy read, though long (with 290 pages and an additional 90 in footnotes and indexes, it’s by no means a one- or two-setting read!).
I thought the author handled controversy well, tactfully and graciously combating the erroneous thinking and false teaching from other non-Bible-believing authors with well-researched facts, sound, Biblical truth, and at times just plain common sense. He addresses commonly used arguments, such as those seemingly controversial issues between the Gospels, the age of when certain books were written, and why some old manuscripts are included in Scripture and some not.
This isn’t just for the theologian or seminary student. Anyone can and should read this book for a deeper understanding and appreciation for God’s Word and how it was divinely inspired. “Has God Spoken?” The obvious answer is a resounding, Yes!
