  1. Great stuff, no complaints I always profit from DeYoung He succeeded in showing, from the Bible, that the Bible is Knowable, Necessary, and Enough.He gets three stars only because I m grading him against his own high standards He s an expert popularizer, gifted to humbly and memorably teach the church from the Bible using good current scholarship He makes me think of a children s author I heard recently talking to the New York Times, who said that his great challenge was to be like Rocky and Bul [...]


  2. Clear and helpful, written for non theologians to be able to understand I feel like I have a stronger faith in the Bible now, and exactly what it says, translation aside If you want to strengthen your faith in the Bible and why we put our whole trust in it, read this book


  3. Kevin DeYoung is easily one of my favorite writers to read Since his book with Ted Kluck, Why We re Not Emergent, I ve enjoyed basically everything he s written With his newest, Taking God at His Word, DeYoung sets out to rebuild confidence in and love for the Bible, the Word of God, in a world that through various ways and means has sought to belittle and malign it Beginning with the vision of the Psalmist in Psalm 119, basically a love poem about the Scriptures, and ending with the familiar 2 [...]


  4. An excellent little book, not scholarly, but a solid starting place for Christians on one of the most important battlefields of our day We need to get back to Scripture, and really believe in the sufficiency, inerrancy, and perspicuity of the Word of God.


  5. This is a brief, but well written defense of a high view of Scripture He doesn t use the term innerrancy often, maybe only a couple of times The subtitle of the book is a very good summation of his purpose in writing the book The Bible has come under increasing attack over the last two hundred years especially in our own generation, so much so, that many scholars argue that there was no historical Adam, and so on.DeYoung insists upon the Bible s authority and not putting reason over it, but unde [...]


  6. THIS is the book that I have been looking for to have my teenagers read in order to bolster a Biblical worldview regarding the sufficiency of Scripture Charming, yet easy to read and follow, with examples that bring deep understanding to an otherwise potentially heady subject, Kevin DeYoung s writing style in this book makes the majesty and trustworthiness and transforming nature of the Bible utterly accessible to any literate person, believer and unbeliever alike His psalmist like enthusiasm fo [...]


  7. A punchy book on the Bible that gives you the core beliefs about the Bible The basis for every chapter is a passage from the Bible illustrating the fact that the Bible is it s best witness It is a clear and simple explanation of the sufficiency, clarity, authority and necessity of the Bible from the Bible It is helpfully supplemented with historical theology Overall a very easy book to read and a great introduction to the theology of the Bible.


  8. What a wonderful providence of God that Kevin DeYoung s newest book, Taking God at His Word Why the Bible is Knowable, Necessary, and Enough and What That Means for You and Me would be published right now With the attempt to redefine what marriage is, what sex is and for whom, and various attempts in the church and academy to undermine God s Word and our understanding of it and Him , this is a welcome resource.Not too long ago my alma mater, Westminster Theological Seminary, was in the midst of [...]


  9. Kevin DeYoung is one of my favorite authors and his works prove themselves time and again to be immensely approachable but not light He covers topics with a striking balance of depth and clarity and I am time and again blessed by his work, be it published books, blog articles, or sermons and lectures This time DeYoung sets out to tackle the topic of God s Word This is a subject of great breadth that you would think could not be covered very well in just 130 pages, but that is just one of many pl [...]


  10. This is a very short, but a very profound book It basically is a heartfelt study on what the Bible speaks about itself We all know these truths, but the author goes deep into opening our hidden attitudes towards the Bible For example, we might say it s authoritative, but deep down in our heart we disbelief that its historical or genealogical parts are also authoritative and breathed out by God.So it s a good read and a good reminder of the special status of the Bible Also, the composition of the [...]


  11. Wonderful book on the importance and value of Scripture Starting out with Psalm 119 a love poem on the vast beauty and delight of Scripture the author takes us through why the Bible is important and valuable for us It is sufficient containing all we need for faith and living It is necessary the only way to a relationship with God is described in its pages It is final there is no revelation from God, Scripture is complete It is understandable everything that is needed to believe in God and have [...]


  12. I ve been giving most books I ve read lately 5 stars, but this is because if I don t think it s 5 star worthy, I probably won t take the time to finish it I d say about this book what one of my professors said at the beginning of a message he preached Nothing here is new just necessary Kevin DeYoung makes a compelling case for the necessity of his excursus on why the Bible is knowable, necessary and enough I found chapters 4 and 7 particularly timely The final chapter is soaring One of my favori [...]


  13. I ve always appreciated Kevin DeYoung s style of writing and his solid defense of the Word of God The sub title to this book is Why the Bible is knowable, necessary, and enough, and what that means for you and me DeYoung gives the answer to this statement in eight chapters, followed by an appendix Thirty of the best books on the Good Book in which he recommends, at various reading levels, other good books which defend and support the Word of God DeYoung writes, Scripture, because it is the breat [...]


  14. I do my reviews in the form of a letter, which is why they are written like this.Dear Kevin DeYoung, I thought this book was very good It s really refreshing to hear people talk about how God s Word is infallible I feel like today, with all the not to be rude junk that the Emergent Church teaches about Scripture, we need someone to teach that God s Word is God breathed I love the way you started the book with Psalm 119 That needs to be my prayer often I want my love for the Bible to be as deep [...]


  15. I attended the book release conference for this book, so when I picked it up after the conference I didn t expect to be as moved as I was DeYoung was powerful at the conference, but I didn t think much would be left in the proverbial sponge I was wrong This book moved me powerfully It is the best practical excursus on bibliology that I am aware of I was surprised how convicted I was of my own lack of faith in the power of the Word of God and impressed at Christ s own robust practical bibliology [...]


  16. DeYoung is to be commended for writing with clarity, simplicity and originality I have come to expect great clarity from DeYoung, but I found his originality surprising because he is saying nothing new Our Father s have warned us, the battle for inerrancy must be fought for in each generation DeYoung restates the arguments of Warfield, Hodges, and Packer and Augustine for that matter in a voice for this generation, all in the the erotic passion of Psalm 119 Due to its clarity, this has become th [...]


  17. DeYoung finds an excellent middle ground in writing a great primer to those who want a book about what a book says about itself He examines scripture s claims about itself and in doing so shows us that it is clear, necessary, sufficient and altogether wonderful The most wonderful things about this book, however, are his resources Buy this book if only for the annotated bibliography The annotated bibliography is an aspiring theologians best friend and his is wonderful RevKev strikes again


  18. This was an excellent, accessible understanding of what the Bible says about itself The chapters on the Sufficiency and Clarity of scripture are particularly helpful The chapter on What Jesus said about scripture was very interesting It concludes with a list of 30 books on this topic which also gives the reading level which will help anyone wanting to study further Highly recommended for everyone The book is available in Kindle, Audible, and dead tree version.


  19. It s too easy to say a book is a must read book, but in today s world of ever changing understandings of the Bible this book stands out as a quick and concise way of drawing from many of the great references we already had written on inerrancy and presenting it in an understandable and clear manner It s very encouraging to me as a believer, this little book makes me want to put down the new books and pick up the old book My bible.


  20. This was a good book, what does the Bible say about itself, what was Jesus view of scripture And what should our view be of scripture based off that This is an easy read, but I plan to re read it and enjoy it like a hot cup of tea rather than devour it like a chocolate shake I borrowed this book from the library and plan on buying a copy for my personal library.


  21. A relatively brief, but incisive look into what we should believe about Scripture In typical DeYoung fashion, there are some absolutely killer paragraphs that summarise a wealth of either theological or historical information with profound insight.


  22. Por qu crees lo que crees sobre la Biblia Conf a en su Palabra nos lleva a confiar en la Palabra de Dios apelando a la autoridad que est por sobre cualquier otra la Biblia misma.Rese a completa en tambienleen 2016 01 09 con


  23. Top notch This book hits the most important things we must understand about Scripture, and DeYoung does it in his beautifully captivating way.


  24. This is a good introduction to the doctrine of biblical inerrancy It s a fast read and puts things in very accessible terms.


  25. Classic DeYoung He s great at writing on important theological topics in a winsome and clear manner.



  26. Taking God At His Word Why the Bible Is Knowable, Necessary, and Enough, and What That Means for You and Me by Kevin DeYoung discusses well, exactly what the subtitle says it does, unpacking what the Bible says about the Bible He begins with Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, an acrostic love song about God s Word in language that would seem excessively emotional by many today, even many who read and love the Bible He wants Psalm 119 to be the goal, the application that the rest of the [...]


  27. An excellent book on God s Word and its place in the life of a believer DeYoung acknowledges in the beginning that his book is not an exhaustive defense of the doctrine of the Word of God, but that he is writing a book that explains the importance of God s Word from God s Word to help a the Christian learn to love God s Word as much as the psalmist does in Ps 119 So, he is showing from God s Word how it is four important attributes for God s people Scripture is sufficient, clear, authoritative, [...]


  28. Kevin DeYoung is a pastor of an RCA congregation in the Lansing area that recently announced its intention to seek membership in the PCA He has written a quite basic introduction to the doctrine of Scripture It s a bit unclear who his target audience is The topic would seem helpful for non believers, but they are hardly addressed I guess it s for young or inexperienced Christians.DeYoung begins in Chapter 1 by discussing Psalm 119 In a lame way, he compares it to cheesy love poems he found on th [...]


  29. Knowable, Necessary, and EnoughI ve heard it many times and from the most unexpected sources I try to read the Bible, but it doesn t seem to say anything to me I don t understand what I m reading It doesn t help me, so I end up quitting Set this response beside David s from Psalm 119 129 Your testimonies are wonderful Therefore my soul keeps them.130 The entrance of Your words gives light It gives understanding to the simple.131 I opened my mouth and panted,For I longed for Your commandments.Th [...]
