A very good coverage 5 Oct. 2003
By Desmond - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This was the first book that introduced me to all the details of the parchments and texts on which modern Bibles are based. It is full of fascinating detail about the books and parchments. It is easy to read, in my humble opinion.
I know that an awful lot more of information has become available since it was published and I keep looking for a fourth edition, but alas no.

Good, conservative information 22 Oct. 2002
By Jerry Mac - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
F.F. Bruce offers the best of the spate of books on the topic of "how we got our Bible." Erudite but clear -- should please masters and journeymen alike.

Excellent reference book for Christian laymen 17 Feb. 2011
By Beukeboom - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Noted Christian theologian F.F. Bruce's book is a very good and easily understandable historical look at how the Bible came to be. This was initially written many years ago and a lot of new information has been brought out by Christian scholars but for a good overview, Bruce's book is a good one to read.
