The Book of Non-Contradiction by Phillip Campbell

The Book of Non-Contradiction: Harmonizing the Scriptures, by Phillip Campbell reintroduces the classical method of harmonizing difficult scriptural passages, showing how the skeptics' claim of a "Bible full of contradictions" is completely unfounded. Proceeding from the axiom that truth cannot contradict truth, The Book of Non-Contradiction follows in the footsteps of great Catholic exegetes like St. Augustine and Tatian who demonstrated the harmony of the Scriptural narrative.

Contemporary biblical scholarship, groaning under the sway of the modernistic theories of "Higher Criticism", tends to view difficult biblical passages as evidence against divine inspiration. The Book of Non-Contradiction examines hundreds of contested passages, using traditional theology and common sense to firmly reassert the historic Christian belief that the Bible is absolutely inerrant in all it affirms. Starting with Genesis and moving through the entire Bible, Mr. Campbell addresses some of the most common arguments put forward by skeptics and answers them with an appeal to common sense and sound Scriptural exegesis, demonstrating that there are no contradictions in the Bible.

Phillip Campbell teaches history for Homeschool Connections and taught Sacred Scripture at the St. Augustine Program in Michigan for ten years. He is also the author of the Story of Civilization series from TAN Books and various other works from Cruachan Hill Press.

"This is a book that needs to be written anew for every generation...The enemies of Christianity always grasp at the same rhetorical straws, and it’s our duty to be ready with the best response. Phillip Campbell makes that easy for Catholics today." ~Mike Aquilina

"Phillip Campbell has provided a very valuable service for Christians, in this defense of the inspiration of will greatly help persons who seek (with an open mind) to learn more about the Bible, and why Christians believe it is infallible and inspired, to see many reasons for why we believe in its inspiration." ~Dave Armstrong

"I am certainly not alone in my lifelong love for reading the Bible. While I have never accepted the historical-critical method of explaining the apparent contradictions in Scripture, I have never doubted its inerrancy. However, I had never found a book that fully supported the inerrancy of Scripture while attempting to address these outward inconsistencies. Several years ago I ran across Phillip Campbell’s work, in which he beautifully reconciles these seeming incongruities. I have used his work both in my meditation and my homily preparation. Thankfully, his scholarly efforts are now compiled in The Book of Non-Contradiction: Harmonizing the Scriptures. Catholic priests, religious, and laity will find this a welcome resource to defend the written Word of God." ~Fr. Scott Archer, Diocese of Peoria, Ill.
