From Ancient Manuscripts to Modern Translations: The History of the Bible
Ancient Manuscripts, Modern Translations, History of the Bible
The history of the Christian Bible (Old and New Testaments) is a remarkable story filled with high drama, inspiration, intrigue, intellectual brilliance and self-sacrifice. Many individuals through the ages gave everything they had — health, wealth, reputation and even their very lives — for the single-minded purpose of making God’s word available to all who could read or be read to. Their sacrifices were not in vain. According to one authority, the Bible “has had a greater influence on the world for good than any other book ever published.”
