Many dedicated and conscientious Christians invest thousands of hours over the course of their lives reading, studying, and discussing the Bible, but relatively few have anything approaching an informed and thoughtful philosophy of the Bible. In this presentation, Jefrey Breshears explores issues of vital interest and concern to Christians and non-Christians alike regarding the Bible, including…
- What is the Bible? If asked to define the Bible without using the familiar cliche, “The Bible is the Word of God,” what would you say?
- Does the Bible present a coherent, consistent and comprehensive worldview and philosophy of life?
- Is there a qualitative difference between the kind of inspiration that we encounter in the Bible and that which motivates gifted writers, speakers, preachers, composers, and artists to produce their works?
- Why is it reasonable to believe that the Bible was divinely-inspired?
- What are the origins of the Bible, and how were the early manuscripts composed?
- Why were certain books included and excluded from the Bible?
- Why should we believe that the Bible has been accurately preserved and transmitted through the centuries?

A Testimonial to Faith and Courage
by Jefrey Breshears
One morning in late January, 1998, I walked into a classroom at Georgia State University to deliver a lecture in my Modern U.S. History course on the origins of the Cold War. Just as I was getting ready to start, a knock came at the door. An interruption like this was unusual, but when I walked over to open the door, a young woman stood looking at me, and with a hint of slight self-consciousness she asked, “Professor Breshears, can I talk to you for a minute?” This was a rather odd request and odd timing, but something compelled me to step out into the hall and shut the door behind me.
She immediately began by saying, “You probably don’t remember me [I didn’t], but I was in one of your classes two years ago. After class one day, we had a talk. I had just found out that I was pregnant, and it seemed like my whole world was falling apart. I wasn’t married, I didn’t know what to do…

New Reasons To Doubt Darwin
The Explosive Origin of Animal Life and the Case for Intelligent Design
Associate Director of The Areopagus
Two books come close to defining the current discussions around Intelligent Design, both by Stephen Meyer. In the first, “Signature in the Cell,” Meyer sets out the case for Intelligent Design based on the kind of information we find in DNA. In his more recent work, “Darwin’s Doubt,” he takes this argument several steps further and looks at the complexity involved in creating new animal forms compared to the incredibly short time period over which most forms show up in the fossil record.
It’s difficult to understand the complexity, marvel at the “burst” of animal forms 500 million years ago, and not conclude that there was more going on than random mutation and natural selection as the orthodox Darwinists would maintain.
