Product Description

The Bible has a story behind it. How did it come to us in its current form? Why did a number of early gospels never make it into the canon of Scripture? Which is the authentic text of the Bible? How was the Bible translated into English? What were the key issues about the Scriptures that divided Christians during the Reformation? A leading international scripture scholar, Fr. Henry Wansbrough, OSB, provides the answers to these questions and many more in this balanced, fast-paced, and entertaining account.

Fr. Henry Wansbrough, a master of communication, takes us on a fascinating journey. With deft strokes, he shows how the Bible did not drop out of the sky in the form we have it, but emerged over several generations. Informative and enjoyable reading!

-Jerome Kodell, OSB abbot, Subiaco Abbey, Arkansas

author, The Catholic Bible Study Handbook

Fr. Wansbrough provides very clear and thorough explanations of the most vexing questions about how the Bible as a book has been edited, translated, and passed down through the centuries — in short, how it has changed and yet remained substantially the same. This book is a wonderful supplement to any introduction to the Bible.

—Lawrence Boadt, CSPauthor, Reading the Old Testament: An Introduction
