Many Muslims say: The Bible is full of errors and contradictions.
My first question would be: Could you please give me an example that really troubles you? What is the passage and what is the problem? Should you not be able to point to one, then please do not attack what you don't know, as to not be found to blaspheme against the Word of God. Taking one from the answer list below doesn't count. The question is what is your motivation when you come to this allegation.
But should you indeed have something that looks like a contradiction or an error there are resources out there you can consult if you want to have answers.
And one more issue to ponder here,
before you go on ... as well as the question:
What are you doing with equally difficult passages in the Qur'an?"

If you have proceeded so far and are still not satisfied, but want to push the issue of Bible contradictions ... then -- even though I don't think this to be a very fruitful area of debate -- I have to ask you:
What about the contradictions in the Qur'an?
