Dr. William D. “Bill” Mounce joins David Capes on the Stone Chapel to talk about his new book, Why Should I Trust the Bible? Answers to Real Questions and Doubts People Have about the Bible (Zondervan, 2021). In this podcast he talks about his book which is for 17 year olds and their parents.
Unfortunately, church often teaches people that they should not ask certain questions. But Bill insists that we should have freedom to ask all questions in the church. This book is to help equip parents and church leaders to answer those questions.
When people say the Bible is full of errors, Bill asks: “show me one.” He knows that they are just parroting what they heard in class or on cable channels.
For Bill doubt is not the opposite of faith; instead doubt helps us to learn. Faith often grows and succeeds through genuine doubts.
Bill is president of BiblicalTraining.org, a non-profit organization offering excellent educational resources to local churches.
Dr. Mounce has been an educator, a pastor, a writer, a Bible translator (English Standard Version and New International Version) and is affectionately known as “Mr. Greek” to hundreds of thousands of his students who have used his Greek textbook, Basics of Biblical Greek.
In his lecture at the Lanier Library in April 2022) he met head on the challenges people often face when thinking about whether they should trust the Bible.
