This book is a classic. It is an exhaustive examination of the history of the Bible--from the time that it was breathed out by God, through its various stages of transmission, down to its present form in our day. It was written by a Bible college professor who is now a missionary. It recognizes that the promises within Scripture declare just as forcibly its preservation as it does its inspiration--that both are supernatural. It is here that his book stands. It is trusted that it will meet the need for a fuller treatment from this viewpoint.
