New Book: The Name “Christian” & Bible Inspiration

From Issue: R&R – April 2022

One of the decisive proofs for the divine origin of the Bible is the prolific presence of predictive prophecy. Particularly impressive is the way God prompted numerous spokesmen to foreshadow New Testament events during the four millennia preceding Christ’s arrival on Earth. Not only did the Old Testament prophets predict that Jesus would be born and then die an atoning death, they also anticipated the establishment of the Church of Christ. What’s more, the 8th-century B.C. Messianic prophet Isaiah meticulously documented the fact that a “new name” would be given to the followers of Christ. This new name stands in stark contrast to the host of religious names and titles that mere humans have invented over the past 2,000 years. Nevertheless, God pre-planned in eternity to bestow upon the followers of Christ the name “Christian.”

Apologetics Press has just released a new book that spotlights the Bible’s uncanny use of predictive prophecy that authenticates its divine origin. Only a divinely-inspired book could provide such specificity, accuracy, and uncanny anticipation.

This book is designed to be used in Bible classes as well as private study. 150 review questions/answers are included to facilitate those uses. Additionally, extensive endnotes, illustrative charts, and appendices are incorporated to further enhance comprehension of God’s amazing truths.
