She5 Stars Out Of 5How We Got The Bible by Timothy JonesApril 28, 2016SheQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0We are doing this study in a small group. Very interesting, there are scriptures to study with the book material. We are really enjoying the study. We have people who are very familiar with the Bible and some brand new Christians who have no knowledge of the scriptures or the history of our Bible, and we are all learning something. Highly recommend this study. Would even work for a new Christians class.
Rich from So Calif5 Stars Out Of 5ExcellentMarch 28, 2016Rich from So CalifQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was expecting a small response in our men's group for this study, Instead we ran about 30 guys. They kept coming back for more. The study was very well done, and even entertaining. But, the best part was how it gave us more confidence in relying on the scriptures as God's holy Word. I highly recommend it.
Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Solid, basic overview for ChristiansJuly 28, 2015Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5"How We Got The Bible" described how the Bible was written, copied, translated, and basically how we got the Bible that we use today. It's written from a conservative, Protestant viewpoint. Not only did the author explain how we got the Bible, but he dealt with some common claims that skeptics make. He showed that the Bible IS trustworthy. This book was easy to read and to follow, and it used charts to help break down some ideas for quick reference.
This book is intended for Christians who want to know more about the origins of the Bible. It's part of a larger DVD group study on the topic (though the book stands on its own). It did a good job of giving a solid, basic overview of the topics covered. Christians who wish to debate skeptics on these topics will probably need to read a more in-depth book, but I'd recommend this as a relatively quick read for Christians who simply want the basics.
I received this book as an ebook review copy from the publisher.
