If all you know about the bible is who the authors were for each of the books that were wrote, then school is in session for you. It give great detail on other contributions not only how we got the bible, but it speaks on books that did not make it into the bible with reasonings. I found out that not all bibles consist of the same books, depending on denomination, some bibles have more historical books included than other denominations. What a great read and insight! Very informative.
As a Pastor, I found this to be an excellent primer for thoe skeptics we welcome to our church and and very good tool for the development of believers. It is quite pithy, leading to more advanced inquiry.
I found the book very easy to understand and quick reading. I could hardly put it down. It tells the TRUTH of what heroic men went through to preserve the precious Word of God. It makes one truly aware of how fortunate we are to have the Bible so readily available to us but far too many Christians don't even read it! Maybe after reading this little jewel one may pick up their Bible with a new appreciation for what we have taken for granted far too long. The day may come when we might not have that freedom!
This book briefly covers what the author feels are the salient points of how the Bible was preserved for us today. The author has obvious issues with the RC Church and some chapters are devoted almost exclusively to detractions against the RC Church.This is a very basic book, but it loses its credibility with its obvious bias. I think this is unfortunate as this could have been a good starting point for younger students or adults getting interested in the subject.
This is a great pocket guide. I've read more extensive books, and I like how this quick read focuses on the main points of how the Bible came to be. For a summary type of book, it explains the progression of the Hebrew and Greek texts quite well. I would highly recommend it.
