As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless (Psalm 18:30). The strong evidence and the repeated conclusions so far in this series that the Bible is a unique revelation from God, and therefore is wholly trustworthy in both its history and theology, inevitably invites strong criticism from those who recognise that to accept this claim demands obedience to the Bible. Book 5 begins by tracing the history of Biblical criticism. What were the influences, in every academic discipline, that pressed forward a destructive view of the Bible? What have been the strengths and weaknesses of evangelical Christians in facing a continuing onslaught against biblical accuracy? It is encouraging to move from this negative information to the positive of what some of the most brilliant academics in the world of biblical archaeology have concluded. In chapter 2 the focus is on some for whom the force of truth radically changed their earlier opinions. The focus, however, is on two great scholars who died some years ago but whose work still speaks powerfully of their challenge to those who question the historical accuracy of the Bible. Their conclusions have been confirmed, but not surpassed, by modern scholars. A commitment to biblical authority is a commitment to sense as well as faith, and no Christian needs to be ashamed to quote from the two outstanding scholars, Professor Robert Dick Wilson and Sir William Mitchell Ramsay. Some of the best evidence from their prolific writing after a life-time of research is given in this chapter.
