The Story of The Bible

The Fascinating History of its Writing, Translation, and Effect on Civilization

 

Larry Stone

Foreword by Ravi Zacharias

In 1844 a German scholar traveled ten days by camel to a monastery guarded by the 1,100-year-old skeleton of a janitor, where the scholar discovered the world's oldest complete copy of the New Testament.

In 1536 William Tyndale was burned at the stake for the crime of publishing the New Testament in English.

The Bible is a remarkable collection of books and letters, written by more than forty authors over a period of 1,500 years. Its words have been studied, disputed, and treasured. They have also brought comfort, conviction, and challenge. Today at least one book of the Bible is translated into more than 2,400 of the world's 6,900 living languages.

The Story of the Bible is a sweeping panorama of the Bible's 3,500-year history, answering questions such as: How accurate are the manuscripts we have?

Do all translations say the same thing? Why are the Dead Sea Scrolls so important?
