Today's news, in its many broadcast formats, is rarely fully accurate. Tight schedules, content-hungry editors, careless reporting, syndicated stories and the relentless pursuit of dramatic headlines all risk distorting the truth. Sometimes, critics of the Bible assume that its text suffers from the same defects. It does not! Interestingly, serious historians have less trouble with the Bible's accuracy, than academic theologians who do not want to accept what it says.
