Be Prepared: "Isn't the Bible a Mythological Book?"

Is Bible Mythology? Truth of Bible, Miracles in Bible
Let's be prepared to answer questions about our faith such as:

Isn't the Bible a mythological book?

Recently someone told me there was no way Jonah could have survived in the belly of a fish because the gastric juices would have killed him. 

My answer about this and similar Bible events (e.g. talking donkeys, parting seas, floating axe heads, healing of the blind) is this: they were miracles.

That means God went against the laws of science when He did them. By their very nature miracles aren't reproducible unless God Himself wishes to reproduce them. 

And miracles are important--if we can't accept miracles, we can't accept Christ.

Why? because " faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see" (Hebrews 11:1).  And faith is required for the most important miracle of all: the resurrection of Christ from the dead, without which there would be no salvation (1 Corinthians 15:12-22).
