Translated into 670 languages with the New Testament being translated into 1500 languages, it is the highest selling, most read book on the planet and no other book comes close. According to the Bible God is the true author.

2. The Bible has survived the attacks of Men.
Throughout the dark ages of history, the truth of the bible was covered. Council of Townhouse, AD 1229 & Council of Tarragona, AD 1234 - Banned and burnt the Bible.
Johny Wycliffe, William Tyndale and other Bible - believing Christians had their bones exhumed & publicly burned.
French atheist Voltaire, before his death said "100 years from today the Bible will be a forgotten Book", ironically 100 years after his death, Voltaire's own home site was used to distribute Bibles for the French Bible Society.

3. The Bible has been preserved over time.
The New Testament has over 5800 manuscripts in the original Greek and over 24,000 total manuscripts, far more than any other ancient book in the world.
The evidence is clear that the Bible has been preserved through the centuries.

4. Science & Archaeology support the Bible
The Bible clearly reveals the shape of the Earth, "It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth" (Isaiah 40:22) KJV. Long before Scientist made this discovery, the Bible had already revealed it.
The Bible was the first to teach that Air has weight, β€œTo make the weight for the winds" (Job 28:25). It was until the 1600's before Scientist made this discovery, centuries after the Bible declared it.
The Tel Dan Stele, Mesha Stele, Cylinders of Nabonidus, and Dead Sea Scrolls all help prove the accuracy of the Bible.

5. The Bible has Internal Consistency
Written over a period of 1500 years by 40 different authors and never meeting each other, they wrote with perfect internal consistency. With all their writings in seamless harmony, could it be that a divine hand was guiding them?
According to the Bible this is exactly what happened. "But holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost" (2 Pet 1:21)

6. Prophecy
Defined as "History written in Advance", the ability to hear from God and predict the future with perfect accuracy. This ability is undisputed proof of divine origin. In the Encyclopedia of Biblical Prophecy J. Barton Payne states that there are 1,817 Prophecies in the Bible. Making up about 27% of the Bible total writings. No other world religion even comes close.
There are over 125 Prophecies in the Bible Old Testament of the coming Messiah - The one who would die for the sins of the Human race.
Jesus perfectly fulfilled each & every one of these Old Testament Prophecies.
According to the science of probability, the chance of one man just completing eight of them is 0.00000000000000001%”
God knows the end from the beginning.

7. The Bible Transforms Lives
The changed life begins by coming to know Christ personally, accepting him as lord and Savior. – Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Corinthians 5:17) KJV
