Product Description

How old are the earliest Biblical manuscripts? How did early Christians decide which writings to include in the Bible? Why do we have so many different translations of the Bible? How has the Bible been preserved and transmitted to us?

How We Got the Bible provides well-researched, accessible answers to many questions like these.

  • Learn about the first materials used to write down the words of Scripture.
  • Uncover the facts of some of history's most fascinating archaeological discoveries including those of the Sinaitic Manuscript, the Oxyrhynchus Papyri, and the Dead Sea Scrolls.
  • Travel through history, from Jerome to Tyndale and beyond, as Lightfoot discusses the origin, transmission and translation of the Bible.
Illustrations and review questions at the end of each chapter make this book ideal for either individual or group study. Concise and engaging, How We Got the Bible is a useful resource for anyone who wants to know the story behind the most widely read book of all time.
