From God to Us — How Did We Get Our Bible?

September 5, 2012 2 Comments
Be not deceived by the modern appearance and sleek cover of the Bible sitting on your shelf or on your desk; the Bible is not a normal book.

“It is one of the oldest books in the world, and yet it is still the world’s best seller. It is the product of the ancient Eastern world, but it has molded the modern Western world. Tyrants have burned the Bible, and believers revere it. It is the most quoted, the most published, the most translated, and the most influential book in the history of humankind.”

How did such a remarkable book journey from the mouth of God through antiquity to us?

Best-Selling authors Norman Geisler and William Nix come together in their revised and expanded From God To Us to comprehensively answer this question. From the mouth of God to the modern reader, the Bible has gone through four distinct stages: inspiration, canonization, transmission, and translation. Each “link” in the chain of God’s communication to us is carefully treated in a full section of the book.

From attacks on the Bible’s inspiration to the validity of modern translations, Nix and Geisler speak to today’s pressing questions as they articulate a strong defense of the Bible’s inspiration, authority, and providential preservation by God.  Charts, photographs, and indexes provide helpful tools for study.

From today until September 9, the ebook version of From God to Us, Revised and Expanded is available for only $1.99 (!) from your favorite e-Book vendors: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Christian Book Distributors, and others.
