One of the most heartening trends of the last century has been the increased interest in the study of the Bible. Many articles, exploratory texts, commentaries, and reference books have been written on and about the Bible. Yet, through all of this study, one basic question still remains: How did we get our Bible?
In this powerful examination, adapted for youth by Mike Wonch, readers will be taken on the miraculous journey of the development of the Bible. With veracity and inspiration, this text colorfully introduces readers to the many aspects of development, including the issues of canonization, biblical transmission, archaeological discoveries, translation, and modern textual criticism.
Through the captivating stories and challenges met along the way, readers will find themselves immersed in a deeper understanding and appreciation for God's Word.
