20 Answers: Bible Difficulties
by Jimmy Akin
What are the two basic interpretation problems we encounter when we read the Bible?
How can we deal with difficulties arising from translation differences, copyist errors, and varying literary genres?
Can we really say the Bible is inerrant when it seems to contain so many internal contradictions about allegedly factual events?
How do we explain apparent errors in Scripture on matters of science and history, or moral problems concerning violence or women’s rights?
The Bible is a source of wisdom, inspiration, and comfort. As Catholics we also believe it is God’s inerrant word. But sometimes we read something that just makes us say, “Huh?” 20 Answers: Bible Difficulties helps clear up the confusion by giving you the tools to recognize—and reconcile—common kinds of Bible difficulties, and by addressing the specific ones that most often embolden skeptics and dismay believers.
