    1. It is well worth reading this short book. There are close to 100 references to the Bible and other Christian books. It supports 2 Tim 3:16-17All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

    2. Brief but brilliantThis books power is found in its brevity. A quick, rich take on the unbreakability of the Bible. More than a primer but a good entry into seeing Scripture for what it is, a declaration of Christ.

    3. This review was first found on mydigitalseminary/unbreakaI’m sure it is difficult to write a short book, seeing as it’s certainly difficult to write a short book review! I am attempting a short review of a short, but engaging, book by Andrew Wilson called Unbreakable: What the Son of God Said About the Word of God.UnbreakableIn Unbreakable, Wilson lets Jesus be our guide to the Bible: “I trust the Bible because I trust in Jesus” (p10). So what does Jesus believe about the Bible? He trust [...]

    4. Well, Andrew Wilson does it again. Although this book is an incredibly brief 73 pages, it is packed with loads of truth about scripture and the One to whom the Bible ultimately points, Jesus. I've read a number of hermeneutics and Biblical theology books, and what Wilson does in these short pages is something none of the others I've read have been able to do: give a clear, layman-level explanation of crucial doctrinal points regarding the Bible. He hits on inspiration, inerrancy, authority, cohe [...]

    5. This is an excellent little book packs a big punch. Short snappy chapters that build to a confident and well founded trust in scripture. The style is engaging and like most good books asks as many questions as it answers. Read this and it will bless you you don't need a Theology degree to follow the lively teaching in "Unbreakable".

    6. Really loved Wilson's approach: reconstructing what Jesus believed about scripture from the clues in the gospels. An excellent, punchy read!

    7. This is a short book on a big subject, which the author acknowledges, and so it’s never going to be thorough and it’s always going to be lacking something. While there are some really good bits in here (chapter 7 on Jesus’ fulfilment of Scripture has some really helpful stuff), I struggled a bit with the Wilson’s tone (bit too conversational for me). From a stylistic point of view, the endnotes drove me slightly bonkers! Overall, it’s an okay introduction to the doctrine of Scripture, [...]

    8. Short yet straight to the point. Wilson takes a unique standpoint by placing Christ as the Chief apologist to the doctrine of Scripture. Ideal for the person that says "Jesus is the word of God, not the Bible".

    9. This is a simple (and short) and good study of Jesus' view of the Old Testament. And it maps out a very plausible account of what his view of the New Testament would have been also.The book covers issues like: inspiration, canon, consistency, clarity of Scripture, and more.It gets a bit cheeky at points. Some will appreciate that, others will not. But the content is good throughout.I recommend.

    10. This short book is brilliant because it focuses not primarily on arguments against scripture, or certain beliefs about scripture, but on Jesus. What did he think of it? What was his attitude towards it? How did he use it? As Charles Spurgeon has noted, "If they take Christ for a centre, they will inevitably have the Scriptures for a centre too." This book shows why.'Unbreakable' is short and readable. There's no excessive use of jargon and not a single dry page. He dramatises stories from the Go [...]

    11. Wilson does a really good job of packing a lot into a short space. He writes well and thrashes out a mostly solid argument for trusting the Bible on the grounds that if Jesus trusts something then his people can likewise.Unsurprisingly, though, this argument is a lot more convincing with regard to the Old Testament as opposed to the New. After all, from a strictly logical perspective it's tough to make a case that Jesus verified teachings that had yet to be put on paper or a canon that had yet t [...]

    12. This is a brief but comprehensive tour of the doctrine of an evangelical doctrine of Scripture that refers back to Jesus as the foundation of Scripture at every point. The author manages to cover authority, inspiration, canon, clarity/perspicuity, sufficiency and the danger of putting Scripture, rather than Jesus, on the throne, all with a lightness of tone that keeps the reader engaged and interested. The mini-Bible overview "And God Said…" is wonderful in its own right. Where there's not spa [...]

    13. This is largely a good a clear little book dealing briefly with aspects of the doctrine of Scripture, e.g. Inspiration, Canon, Sufficiency. It's written in a very easy to read and approachable style and the method - going to Jesus first for his view - will be compelling.I have three concerns, which dropped my rating slightly. The first is that Wilson assets from experience the existence of ongoing prophecy and doesn't distinguish this from Scripture (he makes it clear we don't need anything else [...]

    14. Unbreakable is an easy to read, short book that is a jumping off point for exploring biblical accuracy and authority. It would be a fast read except that a read all the reference notes at the back of the book which lead me to check out other things which lead to looking up other things and cross referencing other editions and looking up other things, which I think is really the mark of a good book. I liked the conversational tone that the author uses and that he never tries to impress you with w [...]

    15. This is an excellent, short, easy to read, interesting, and true (!) book about Jesus and his view of the Bible. One could read this book in an entire sitting, or spend a few minutes reading one chapter per day. It's the type of book that every Christian should read--and every Christian could easily read it. In short, Wilson looks at several passages that indicate Jesus' view of the Old Testament, his own words, and the apostolic ministry of those who would write the New Testament. Jesus viewed [...]

    16. This book is in equal measure both dense and beautifully composed as it is pithy and concise. It is restrained in developing some points, however, it is majestic in developing the skeleton of so much content. What I love is that it hints at much for many Christians to explore further. It simplifies with no loss to the complexity of the issues. It is highly recommended for all young Christians to have grounded the importance of why we engage with the Bible. Because Jesus believed in the Bible (66 [...]

    17. Wilson has taken a helpful approach here, examining the authority of Scripture based on how Jesus used it and talked about it. Designed for quick, easy consumption, this book holds a high view of God’s Word. The problem with such entry-level books, however, is that depth is sacrificed for accessibility and the pacing is so rapid-fire there is barely time to think about one issue before another is addressed. An admirable effort, yet a bit thin.

    18. Short, interesting and very readable book suitable to give to a new Christian about the Word of God - how and why to read it. Includes sections on the authority, inspiration and message of the Bible and how to interpret it correctly - paying attention to context, purpose, genre and author's intention.

    19. Super fun and easy read short book about the trustworthiness of The Scriptures. Why can we trust the Bible, what and how does the Word of God work. Recommended, especially for sceptics and people who are curious about Christian faith.

    20. This book was a summer read, but it was pretty interesting as far as Biblical books go. The writer had a unique tone, but I appreciated the brevity and clarity of the writing. Wilson made some fascinating points in his work.

    21. This book elegantly does what its title suggests. It gives an orthodox, Protestant answer to wondering minds concerning the Scriptures. And it has a useful list of recommendations at its end. The fact that it is so short is probably its greatest attribute. I enjoyed it a lot.

    22. InterestingThis was a short book, but interesting to see what Jesus viewed about scripture. The importance of keeping the bible in proper perspective, so that in reading we don't miss the main point: Jesus.

    23. A very easy read which is short and to the point, but also packed with fresh insights. There are some really great observations about the nature of Scripture contained in its brief chapters. Put this into the hands of a new Christian and use it as a basis for discipleship.

    24. Short, helpful, and to-the-point.It's one limitation is that despite its brevity it's written in such a way that it assumes the reader already has a reasonable knowledge of the Bible. And so it's not the book to give to unbelievers / new-believers that I hoped it would be.

    28. Don't want to rate it just yet. It's short so quick to read but it's meaty and I plan on reading it again in the fall prior to discussion.
