The Origin of the Bible

SKU: 681b412b2adf BooksBible Study Tools


Though there are many books to help readers understand the context of the Bible, few explain its origins. This updated volume provides a fascinating overview of how the Bible was inspired, read as sacred literature, canonized, copied in ancient Hebrew and Greek manuscripts, and eventually translated into the language of the world. The Origin of the Bible is a comprehensive guide to the origin and development of the Bible text, manuscripts, and canon.

This updated edition also provides a chapter on recent developments in Bible translation. An excellent resource for pastors, Bible teachers, students, seminarians, and interested lay Christians, this book provides a wealth of information about the historical development of the Bible.

Contributors include F.F. Bruce, J.I. Packer, Philip Comfort, Carl F.H. Henry, Leland Ryken, and more.
