Welcome to the Fascinating Story of How We Got The World's Greatest Book-The Bible.

It is a captivating story that includes a little bit of everything: adventure and violence, mystery and bravery, and dumb luck or divine intervention-depending on your point of view.

How in the world did we get this book that some people swear by-and other people swear at? You don't have to be a skeptic to have a grocery list of questions about the formation of the Bible, such as:
-Who wrote these documents and when?
-How were these ancient writings transmitted through the ages?
-As scribes made copies of copies, didn't they make mistakes that caused the ancient writings to be changed and corrupted?
-How was it decided which writings would be included in the Bible?
