The Word

The History of the Bible and How It Came to Us

The Word: The History of the Bible and How It Came to Us provides a sweeping panorama of biblical revelation, preservation and transmission—and the background story of those who devoted their lives – and sometimes suffered death – to translate and transmit the Word of God. In the process, this highly readable narrative likewise follows the history of Christianity and unfolds its unforgettable story with a writing style aimed at the general reader and a level of scholarship that will appeal to history-lovers and serious students of the Bible. A truly unique history of the world’s most popular book, The Word is perfectly suited “for such a time as this.”
