Product Description

The Bible continues to be the world's runaway best-seller. But very few people could say just how its seemingly disparate jumble of writings---stories, letters, poems, collections of laws, religious visions---got there. Filling this knowledge gap, How the Bible Was Built clearly tells the story of how the Bible came to be.

Penned by Charles Merrill Smith in response to his teenage granddaughter's questions, the manuscript was discovered after Smith's death and has been reworked by his friend James Bennett for a wider audience. Free of theological or sectarian slant, this little volume provides a concise, factual overview of the Bible's construction throughout history, outlining how its various books were written and collected and later canonized and translated.

Written in an easy conversational style and enhanced by two helpful appendices (of biblical terms and dates), How th Bible Was Built will give a more informed understanding of the Bible to people of virtually any reading level and any religious persuasion.
