Product Description

This book is about the Bible—the most important book that has existed in the history of the world. As you turn the pages of this revised and expanded edition, you will discover how to navigate the Bible with careful scholarship.

You will gain key insights such as:

  • Inspiration—who wrote the Bible?
  • Canonization—which books belong to it?
  • Transmission—has it been accurately preserved?
  • Translation—has it been adequately translated?

The history of the doctrine of inspiration, contemporary theories of revelation, recent trends in textual criticism, and a review of modern English Bible translations are all included. This book gives special emphasis to conservative scholarship and provides clearly defined responses to the negative criticism that undermines the authority of the Bible.

The most important book in the world must be handled with precision and understanding. Engage this valuable resource to better know the God of the Bible.
