“This six-session DVD study is simple enough yet detailed enough to inform you on this topic, so that, next time someone tries to inform you of some popular but misled beliefs about the Word of God, you will not only have an answer, but, perhaps, some interesting info for them, as well. Good format. Good from teenage onward.”
— Beverley Webster, Rose Customer Review

“How can we be assured that the Bible we read today is the accurate and infallible word of God? Dr. Jones thoroughly explains how the Bible was meticulously translated and verified through the testimonies of eyewitness accounts…I found the teachings on this topic persuasive and answers questions that many Christian have relating to trusting the authenticity of the Bible. Dr. Jones makes the study relevant to our modern day practices and experiences and expounds upon the culture and age that the Scriptures were written. His presentation is enthusiastic and is not monotone… I would definitely recommend this series for all Christians.”

–Kristian, customer review of How We Got the Bible pamphlet (Included in the Complete Kit)

“I am the Chair of the Biblical Studies department at my college and teach various courses in Biblical Studies. I have used the How We Got the Bible PowerPoint throughout this past school year and have found it very well done and helpful for the classroom. The slides are clearly labeled and well laid out. The slides begin with background information regarding the Bible’s composition. This is a good collection of slides which would be useful in the classroom setting, for Sunday school, or even to supplement the Sunday morning sermon. The slides are not locked so the information can be tweaked to fit the particular situation.”
