Westminster John Knox Press How the Bible Came to Be

In a clear and concise way, John Barton explains the process of the development of the Bible. He describes how that which we now know as the Bible came to be written and collected into the authoritative scriptures of the Christian church. With a helpful glossary of important terms, this work is a valuable resource for personal or group Bible studies, beginning Bible students, and all readers who have questions about the origin and transmission of Holy Scripture.

I purchased this book to place in the Faith Base dorms at a local jail, and I kept one copy to read. The book was okay; I was somewhat disappointed. I guess I was expecting more than what was presented. There are other books available that are much better and I would look for the other sources. Too much emphasis was presented on one area and not enough in other areas; simply put; I was disappointed.
