How We Got the Bible Pamphlet
How We Got the Bible
I recently received an advanced copy of Rose PublishingÃ¢ÂÂs How We Got the Bible pamphlet. This is a great overview of how the bible has developed through the centuries. As with most publication Rose Publishing produces, this is richly illustrated.
It is presented in timeline format, making it easy to follow. The timeline starts at 2000 BC and moves through history ending at 2005 AD. Under each year heading are listed the significant events and people responsible for translating and producing the bible as we know it. The last page is a chart depicting major translations in order of publication.
What I like about this pamphlet, is its simplicity. The facts are presented in a condensed form. There is enough generalization to be significant, yet leaves room for further investigation by those who want to delve deeper into the material.
The one fault I find is under the 2005 New English Translation (NET) more could have been said as to why the translation was produced. Also, in 2006 the NET was available as a print edition.

Every Christian should have one!
As we "study to show ourselves approved" every Christian should have one of these to become better informed about not only the origin of the Bible but to understand the various translations.

Do you know someone who is a Bible sceptic?
I have tried to explain why the Bible is infallible, and the facts I could remember were at best nebulous. Without an authoritative source of information I can tell them that there is proof that the Bible has stood the test of time and Constantinople did not change it to suit his whims, etc. but that doesn't change their opinion unless they have a high trust of my reliability.
Without this pamphlet I can only cite one truth with certainty that is, 'God is God! He created the whole universe and if He can do that He can certainly preserve His word' and He has done that. For some that will be enough, but if your listener is still sceptical, this little pamphlet is priceless.

A rather helpful peice in increasing my knowledge and further study of the BIBLE. It proved to be helpful, interesting and understandable.
