Publisher's Description

How and when did the books of the Bible originate? In what sense are these books different from other books? How have these books been preserved and transmitted to us? Why do we have so many different translations of the Bible?
How We Got the Bible provides factual, accessible answers to questions like these. A classic guide for Bible students, it has sold more than 300,000 copies during its forty years in print. Now, in this new edition, each chapter has been revised and chapters have been added, including two on the Septuagint and the Latin Vulgate. This thorough revision will tempt fans of the previous edition and pave the way for a new generation of readers as well.

    This review was written for How We Got the Bible, Third Edition .
    Where did the Bible come from? How has its text been preserved through the ages? And how has it come to be in translations that we can understand? How We Got the Bible is a factual account of how the Bible has been preserved and handed down to our generation, providing easily accessible answers to questions concerning the origin, preservation, and transmission of the Bible. It includes a profitable study of the numerous translations of the Bible to help one understand the heritage and origins of varying versions. There are review questions at the end of each of the eighteen chapters for either individual or group study.

    Neil R. Lightfoot, who has a Ph.D. from Duke University is Frank Pack Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Abilene Christian University in Abilene, TX. This book is written not for the scholar but for the average reader who wants to understand more about how the Bible came to us; yet, it is no less accurate than an academic tome. It has sold more than one million copies during its forty years in print. There are a couple of weaknesses in my estimation. Lightfoot appears to give the same kind of slavish devotion to the modern Wescott-Hort text that he accuses those who promote the older Textus Receptus and the King James Bible of having to that text. And he lavishes great praise on the Revised Standard Version and its descendant, the New Revised Standard Version, but gives very short shrift to the New American Standard and New King James Versions. However, the book is filled with useful information that deserves to be considered.
