A book which will lift men up to God must have come from God! 
The Bible (which translation?) has many proofs. The greatest heart felt proof is in the lives of believers who have been helped by it-(2Corinthians 5:17); help for a better life through having a sound mind; hope for the future; joy of heart today; a different outlook as to their existence here; a redirection from selfishness, me first, and greed thinking to outgoing love. They have had an experience that has made everything new; they are now confident and possess new vitality! From then on, day by day, they discover that they have a new heart growing-in concern for others. That's because it's the belief propelling them
    Consider the lives of the ones with Jesus before and after His death. They became much different. 
    As one looks back after having accepted Jesus Christ to be worthy to dwell in his or her heart, he sees that remarkably, his attitudes are changing. Basically they change from a selfish, me first thinking, to one of concern for others, accompanied with works toward that end. Lifetime habits of selfishness drop away. Priorities alter to include time for an increasing relationship with Him who Christ came to direct us to -John 17:23,26
    They feel whole, no longer fragmented, no longer unduly concerned about the outcome of their lives or the overall direction of mankind. They know God is in charge!
    They first of all know the Bible is true by the greatest proof of all. What it says about a new nature in one, works! Anyone who, in sincerity has asked God to come and help him.(as occurred to Derek when he did).and for God to come into his heart and change him, experiences heartfelt change!

But can we academically trust the Bible to be accurate and true to source – God? What does it tell us about itself, and, if we apply hat it says, are results corroborative? -Proverbs 30:5; Psalms 12:6; 2Peter 1:20; 2Timothy 3:16. And which translation

New Testament events like the resurrection of Jesus Christ have eyewitness authenticity. Luke the physician, says he gathered the eyewitness testimony and carefully investigated everything -Luke 1:1-4. These guys were not fools.
    Would Jesus have picked those with seemingly no potential to carry His important message? -2Peter 1:16. The reliability of scripture is also confirmed through the eyewitness credentials of the authors. 
    Many secular historians from that time whose writings we still have, give testimony to the New Testament's historical accuracy. These include the extremely meticulous and highly regarded great historian.Josephus.(free here), before 100 A.D; Tacitus of Rome, about 120 A.D.; Pliny the Younger, a Roman governor, 110 A.D.; Suetonius, a Roman, about 110 A.D. Before 250 A.D. early church leaders such as Tertullian, Clement of Rome, Julius Africanus and Irenaeus confirm the many events, places, people and their customs of that time. 
    As well much archaeology.(see Biblical Archaeology Magazine).confirms the events in and the reliability of the Bible. Sir William Ramsay, archaeologist and Biblical skeptic set out to disprove the historical reliability of the Bible. On his trips to the Mediterranean he found accuracy as to Luke's accounts.

Fulfilled prophecy is proof. Careful research confirms the predictive accuracy of the Bible. History corroborates the destruction of many ancient cities whose destruction was foretold in the Bible. One can go to the encyclopedia to find out just when a person lived who had made a prediction in the Bible, that hundreds of years later came to pass with every detail intact. 
    In some prophecies, even the exact name and position and what that person would then do was right on! You can again check the encyclopedia for the dates of these occurrences. Perhaps go to a Christian bookstore and see if they have a book on fulfilled prophecy. 
    The Book of Daniel.(written before 530 B.C. {Before Christ}, or B.C.E, whichever you like).predicted accurately the progression of kingdoms from Babylon through the Medo Persian Empire, the Greek Empire, and then the Roman Empire, even predicting the persecution and suffering of the Jews under Antiochus IV Epiphanes, his desecration of the temple, his untimely death, and freedom for the Jews under Judas Maccabeus in 165 B.C. 
    Similarly, other Old Testament.(and even the Old Testament itself supports the Bible's factuality).prophecies concerning Tyre, an ancient Phoenician city, were fulfilled -Ezekiel 26:3-5,12. Likewise Sidon.(Ezekiel 28:22,23; Isaiah 23rd chapter; Jeremiah 27:3-6; 47:4).and Babylon -Jeremiah 50:13;39; 51:26,42,44,58; Isaiah 13:20,21
    God ensures that whatever He inspires someone to say, does indeed come to pass -Acts 11:28 "And there stood up one of them named Agabus and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world, which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.".(Emperor of Rome 41-54 A.D.)
    But there's much more-...continue?
