Hanegraaff sets out to prove that the Bible is God's message to everyone and that it is a true account of God's interaction with his people. He also intends to discount the Bible's critics, some of whom are noted professors.
He uses a number of anagrams to help readers remember his main points. The basic outline of the book is as follows:
- M represents the strength of the manuscript itself as many actual fragments have been located (accuracy of the text).
- A stands for the archaeological proofs that have been uncovered (historical accuracy).
- P is for the prophecy that has accurately predicted events.
- S represents the scriptural synergy found in the unity, consistency, and harmony of the sixty-six books.
Hanegraaff's critics point out that he has no seminary training, yet he certainly knows his Bible. His writing style is engaging, and he provides plentiful documentation in the end notes. I would recommend the book to anyone wanting to learn more about the Bible and its origins.
