"Has God Spoken?" by Hank Hanegraaff

“Has God Spoken?” is a book written in defense of the Bible. In a world where faith in general and Scripture in particular are questioned, attacked and even scoffed at, this is an important subject. Hanegraaff delves into defenses based upon textual evidence, archeology, scripture fulfillment and—perhaps most importantly—the correct reading and use of the text. He makes heavy use of acronyms as memory aids for those reading the text, presumably to aid them in retaining the defenses provided in the book.

This book is a helpful volume for those of faith who are finding their beliefs challenged. It provides much information that will encourage believers, and it breaks down some of the more common and popular arguments raised-up against scripture. Whether or not it is something that will help people mount a defense against the scoffers is questionable. The book itself does not seem to be encouraging that approach. It could be helpful for truth seekers who are on the fence about the validity of the Bible.

The most helpful and important part of the book is the last section that teaches a good approach to interpretation of Scripture. More than anything else today, this is something people of faith need to hear. It is nothing new that can’t be found in other books about that subject, and the acronym forces the teaching into a less than intuitive structure, but maybe the interest in the main subject of the book will achieve greater Biblical understanding.
