Taking God at His Word (Croire Dieu sur parole)
Why the Bible is accessible, necessary and sufficient, and what it means to you and me.
Is the Word of God really the truth? What is its use for our lives? Are we really able to understand it?

The author demonstrates her infallibility, the need to immerse oneself in it, to know it, to love it and to put it into practice on a daily basis. This accessible book will rekindle your desire to know God better through his Word.
So, let go of all prejudice and indulge yourself in the truth!

“One of my prayers for my next twenty years of ministry (if the Lord sees fit to grant them to me) is that we will see an exponential increase in the level of knowledge of the Bible. For this to happen, we must learn what the scriptures are and how much we can rely on them. Kevin DeYoung contributes perfectly to this in this book. May the knowledge and love of the God of the Word grow even further through this little book. »

"This is a brilliant, both concise and in-depth study of the authority and sufficiency of Scripture, based on what Scripture says about itself. . Clarity and passion characterize Kevin DeYoung's writing, and it is perhaps his most successful and important work to date. »
