A Doubter's Guide to the BibleExcept for 2007, when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows sold 40 million copies, every year the Bible has been the number one bestseller.

Why is the Bible so popular? In today’s video John Dickson, author of A Doubter’s Guide to the Bible, explains two possible reasons:

  1. “The Church imposes it on the world; it makes this Book the popular book.”
  2. “The Bible tells a story from the first book, Genesis, to the last book, Revelation, that people long to be true.”

Dickson goes on to explain what he says in his book: “[the Bible’s] account of humanity and the world we live in rings true. Reading the Bible can be like meeting someone you don’t know who, oddly, somehow seems to know you deeply.” (10)

A Doubter’s Guide to the Bible takes people who doubt through the entire biblical narrative that touches on their skeptical questions. Watch his video to learn more.
