I became a JW with having a reverence for the Bible but not knowing much about it (my up bringing)
Good point smiddy. One of the biggest protections against losing faith in the inerrancy of the Bible is ignorance or superficial knowledge of its contents. Those who study the Bible in its entirety, allowing it to speak, realize it is the product of the ages in which its multiple books were written )and copiously re-written.
Some believers need a special kind of compartmentalized thinking to see it as the inerrant "Word of God", whilst many others are shielded from disbelief by their wilful ignorance of, if not apathy towards the moral and logical implications of its full contents.
