The New Testament Documents: Are They Reliable?
"In this modern classic in the field of New Testament studies, F. F. Bruce, one of evangelicalism's most respected scholars, makes a clear case for the historical trustworthiness of the Christian Scriptures. Are the New Testament documents reliable? Drawing on evidence from the documents themselves, as well as from sources outside the New Testament, Bruce demonstrates that they are. In concise, clearly written chapters, Bruce explores the canon and dating of the New Testament, the nature of the Gospels (including a look at miracles), the life and writings of Paul, and archaeological and literary sources of the New Testament period. The result is an expert, convincing and thoroughly engaging affirmation of the New Testament." --
