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 th...

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!

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 w...

This is a great book for Christians in 2016, where we're experiencing much of the fruit of liberal Bible scholarship that began ~150 years ago. DeYoung is an incredible writer that presents the Biblically posited truths of the Bible's supremacy in an engaging and refreshing way.

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.

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...

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 wr...

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 att...

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 lec...

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." Ke...
