Publisher's Description

What books make up the Bible and why? Who wrote the Bible? Who decided what should go in? How can we know that what is in the Bible is from God?

This short book answers some critical questions about the Word of God, helping us to understand where the Scriptures came from and why we can trust them. Covering the origins and translations of the Old and New Testaments, this straightforward introduction answers many questions, and provides suggestions for further reading if you want to research the topic further.

Editorial Reviews

If you are looking for a readable, informed, and theologically–grounded explanation for where our Bibles came from, then this new volume by Greg Lanier is it.  Finally, we have an accessible book on the biblical canon that is answering the kind of questions ordinary Christians are asking. I highly recommend it.


Greg Lanier has done the church a great service with this short but meaty read, helping the ordinary church member both to understand the process of how we got our Bibles, and to have well–founded confidence in the text of God’s word before us. An edifying and enlightening book.


Without being overly wordy or technical, this pocket guide provides clear and accessible explanations for why we can be confident that our Bibles are the Word of God.


Carefully researched and easy to read, Greg Lanier has provided an excellent resource for both pastors and laypeople … Dr. Lanier takes his reader through the history and complexity of our Bible. This pocket guide answers difficult questions about the formation of the canon of scripture with clarity, precision, and a pastor’s heart.
