An elderly lady once left $20,000 and "my Bible and all it contains" to her nephew. The young man knew what the Bible contained so he didn't bother to open it. He merely picked it up and put it on a high shelf in his house, and headed for Las Vegas. It wasn't long until all his money was gone. He lived the next 60 years as a pauper, scraping for every meal and barely havin ...more

Enjoyed the facts given that relates the Bible with science. In fact, the facts of science was already present in the Bible before mankind discovered them. This should make unbelievers reconsider their unbelief in the Bible or God.

Ray Comfort opens by declaring his hope that the reader is skeptical. A skeptic might might take note of the book’s very title: “Scientific Facts In The Bible”, and ask what constitutes a “scientific fact”, and whether it can be easily distinguished from other kinds of fact. Is the fact that water exhibits surface tension a scientific one? Is the fact that gravity accelerates object at the rate of 9.8 meters per second per second a scientific one?

This may seem like a fastidious quibble, but I po

Wow! I had to also look up the verse references to see the context & see if it really stated some of those facts (as well as how those facts were phrased). Some of the time I wish the book could've gone into more detail. I had also heard that nuclear war was mentioned in the Bible, but wasn't sure how people saw that information in how the Bible phrased it. I bought it as reading material for a plane trip from Houston to Managua (Nicaragua), & I finished it. I think it's wonderful when I ...more

For those looking for scientific proof that God exists and that the Bible is true, then this is the book for you. Highly interesting and fact filled.

This is a wonderful book to remind oneself of the God we serve. I enjoy looking up the scriptures that are referenced with each scientific fact that is not understood by man until centuries after they were recorded. The book is an excellent reference for Facebook posts or teaching grandchildren. I keep it nearby for easy access.

This was a very good book that went through various books of the Bible and showed how science and the Bible are connected. It shows that the Bible had inside it the answers that even many of the greatest scientist recognized as being true in the Bible before science discovered them.

What a dangerous load of old claptrap.
I saw this on sale in a whole shelf of similar balderdash in an airport in Florida and just could not resist it. After it, it’s a small book, and only 100 pages, and pretty simple-minded, so it wasn’t going to be too taxing to read.
Its capacity to annoy, however, is vastly out of proportion to its size.
Full of gibberish and muddle-headed quasi-thoughts couched in proud confident phrasing, this is a good expose of the clouded mind of the Bible believer.

An amazing compilation of facts that describe scientific discoveries that won't be confirmed by modern scientists until centuries have passed. If anybody needed proof that the bible is the inspired word of God, this book should provide a good starting point.
Helen
This is more a booklet than a book, and consequently I got through this in one sitting very quickly. It's 101 small pages, and large font make it an easy read. It is interesting but like many "proof" books covering a lot of topics it only skims and might be suited to someone without a scientific background.

There are some really amazing paragraphs where the author cites Bible verses that highlight principals that were not accepted scientific thought for, in some cases, over 2,000 years since writ

I was so excited when I saw this book on the shelf. As a Christian and a science teacher who teaches at a very conservative rural public school, I was fully ready for some back-up that I could reference when those questions came firing. There is a lot of good information in the first and middle portion of this book that helps to point out a lot of science that we understand to be true today in the Bible.

Unfortunately, the part that I was most excited about, the evolution, was exactly the OPPOSIT

While there were some interesting facts in this book at times it seemed as though the author was grasping at straws. Perhaps those topics just needed to be delved into a bit more deeply to make the fact more sound and less coincidence. I particulary enjoyed the third chapter about medical science. It was very interesting to see how much information people gathered of the medical field without actually knowing how everything worked. However, I was still disappointed in the obvious religious bias ...more

I did enjoy this book. being a christian and liking science , this book was satisfying... i read a prior review on the fact that ray comfort manipulated the bible to fit scientific facts.... however i think God purposely mystifies his words so that we decipher them ourselves. we also have to think about the dialect and diction the authors of the bible spoke in, their words can definitly mean the same as our modern slang.. so i feel as if his points proved accurate. Being that ray comfort is not ...more

Wow! This was an amazing booklet! I will be using this in my youth group lessons. All scientific discoveries are in the Bible, but that is ok! It is great we are proving the Bible to be full of facts! Every Christian student and teacher should read this book!!!

Very good. Why not share this one with a scientist, or those that love Science and may be unaware of the science in the Bible.

Good book for my kids to help us discuss their questions between science and what they’re learning in church. I think it would be best read as a study book, where you read it in conjunction with the scriptures referenced (which are not always quoted and not alway given context) as well as some simple google researching of some of the people and historical references discussed as some of this assumes the reader already knows some of them, and I doubt my children are aware.

For anyone who mistakenly believes that the Bible has no scientific Creedence. THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU. The author does a great job of finding biblical verses that back up the scientific evidence of today. Proving once and for all that the Bible and science do not fight, but are actually in agreement with each other.

Best book for people who are interested in proven facts and Christians who have doubt in Bible. I personally like it. Very heart warming to see such book among the other ones who are eager to point out Contradictions rather than facts.

As a believer with a relatively strong scientific background, I was disappointed. I found little that would persuade me to belief, if I wasn’t already there. And as a believer, I found little new science to back me up.

It covers a lot of topics, but just skims the surface. There is more to learn outside this book, but it's a great start to more digging and truth!

This thing is absolutely brilliant. I was very pleased by it, not only because it answered all of my questions in clear, understandable, but scientific ways, but also because in doing that it made me finally feel that I can adequately defend my beliefs on this subject. Everyone needs to read this; be you Christian/creationist, or atheist/evolutionist.


Something I wrote after reading this book that I feel sums up some of what I learned:

One common belief about the theory of evolution is that as l

Some parts were good and interesting and then some fall short. The book needs to be updated and focus more on facts then just quotes.

Excellent reminder of the historical, scientific & contemporary accuracy of the Bible. Careful students of science might quibble with one or two interpretations of texts in the Bible purportedly referring to modern scientific discoveries, but it would be very difficult if not impossible to ignore or dismiss every one. Similarly, careful students of the Bible can quibble with two or three of the claims made regarding prophecy--particularly involving the continuing significance of the modern ( ...more

Per the usual, I didn't agree with all of the author's theology (especially some of the information regarding prophecy). And one feature confused me was the section of quotations from famous historical figures about the Bible. I failed to see how those could be classified as "scientific facts." Regardless, I did learn some new things from this book, so considering what a quick read it was, I feel it was a worthy investment of my time.

Small book I saw in the store months ago i havent bought it dont know why but i already read alot of it in the store. I will go back and buy! Really interesting facts. Some can be found online more detailed ones. These are broad facts but really interesting

Read it and loved it, a bit repetitive at one point but makes up for it on the way that its written, like explaininh it to a non believer :)

Good short book only 101 pages not long at all. But had lots of interesting facts in it that shows that God is in charge of it all. I found many quotes that I liked as well in this book.
