Kurt Eichenwald’s Attack on the Bible Soundly & Thoroughly Refuted

Newsweek’s recent article on the Bible, The Bible: So Misunderstood It’s a Sin, has garnered a lot of attention, both on the web and the media.  It has especially grabbed the attention of some leading evangelical apologists and theologians who decry the article as nothing but a caricature and misrepresentation of the facts; and indeed, that is exactly what it is.  Any Christian who is at least vaguely familiar with Church history, the transmission of the text of Scripture, and the fundamentals of the faith will find the article, written by Kurt Eichenwald, difficult to take seriously.  But there is a sense in which we must take this article seriously.  This is nothing but a “hit piece” intended to cast further doubt on the Bible and muzzle the voice of Christians in our nation.  As Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr. noted in his article, “He [Eichenwald] has an axe to grind, and grind he does” (Newsweek on the Bible–So Misrepresented It’s a Sin).  Eichenwald’s accusations are essentially the same as what you will likely hear on the web and in college halls every day.  That’s why we must be quick to answer, ready to silence the foolishness represented in this article.  Leave it to Dr. James White to help us in this area of apologetics.  Dr. White provides a sound and thorough refutation of Eichenwald’s gross misrepresentations, both of the Christian community and the Bible itself.
