I would recommend this book to believers and nonbelievers alike as the evidence presented by the contributors are sufficiently convincing for both groups. One must marvel at how God has kept the transmission of His written Word intact throughout the ages despite wars, natural disasters, and human error. Moreover, the power and truthfulness of the Bible is seen simply in that no other piece of literature in the world has been copied, translated, and read as much as the Bible has. In our rapidly changing world, we can rely on the Bible as the unchanging, holy standard that tells us who God is and how we are to respond to Him as His creatures.
