The bibles ability to remain a best seller year after year is given a rationale that is compelling in its coherence and confronting in its capacity to meet the needs of mankind regardless of race.
John's respectful approach to the concerns of "doubters" over the bibles accounts of who we are, what is wrong, where are we going and what is our hope, will allow thoughtful consideration by the many who find discomfort in the modern conclusion that "this is all there is".

- I AM a believer, as I've experienced a couple of things I can only attribute to some kind've supernatural power. Jesus & Christianity ring true to me, & the Old T. is OK as a history of the Israelites/Jews, in the context of an ancient sexist alien culture.
I think us doubters will never find the 'proof' we seek in books, archaeology, science; it can only be found through personal experience of God. *Having said that, I've just bought 2 books on 'Near Death Experience as Proof of God' 😂 😂 😂 - God loves a trier...
Also it's not just beneficial for doubters, although it is written with them in mind, it will help christians to clarify the major themes that run through it, which are so important to understand.
So if you want to know why the bible is the number one best selling book year after year, well Doubters Guide to the Bible is going to help you understand the answer to that question.
