How We Got The Bible
by Neil Lightfoot
How We Got the Bible provides factual, accessible answers to questions such asHow and when did the books of the Bible originate? In what sense are these books different from other books? How have these books been preserved and transmitted to us? Why do we have so many different translations of the Bible? A popular guide for Bible students, it has sold more than 1 million copies during its forty years in print. This trade paper edition of the well-loved classic offers readers an even more affordable way to learn about the development of the most important book in history.
While Lightfoot’s work can sometimes read like a miniature textbook, it is nonetheless a fascinating look at the history of the world’s most talked about book. It is packed full of facts and evidence, allowing the reader to draw their own conclusions, but not allowing generalities and rumors to go unaddressed. It forces you to examine the truth of the Bible’s history, and to put aside arguments based on urban legend or hearsay. What facts do we have, and what conclusions can be drawn from them? If you are a human being, then I’m sure you have an opinion about the Bible. Do yourself a favor and read this book, because then when you see me at the coffee house we can talk facts and maybe even an opinion or two.
