The basic facts about how we got our Bible, explained in a simple, clear ^style. Includes discussion on inspiration, textual criticism, and various modern ^translations. Completed revised and updated edition of  the 1974 work ^(more than 78,000 copies sold). The authors write: "The chain of communication from ^God to us is strong.  It has several solid links: inspiration, collection, ^transmission, and translations.  The strength of these links provide the contemporary ^Christian with the moral certitude that the Spirit-inspired original text of Scripture ^has been providentially preserved by God so that for all practical purposes the ^Bible in our hands is the infallible and inerrant word of God."

NORMAN GEISLER (Th.B., William Tyndale College; A.B., Wheaton College; ^M.A., Wheaton College Graduate School; Ph.D., Loyola University) Distinguished Professor ^of Apologetics at the Veritas Evangelical Seminary in Murrieta, California www.VeritasSeminary.com. He is the author or co-author of some ^80 books including A General Introduction to the Bible, Baker Dictionary of Christian ^Apologetics, Christian Ethics, and Systematic Theology. He has also ^written hundreds of articles. He and his wife of 57 years, Barbara, have six children, ^fifteen grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. They live in Charlotte, North ^Carolina.

WILLIAM E. NIX (A.B., Wayne State University; A.M., University ^of Michigan; Ph.D., University of Oklahoma) is an editorial and educational consultant ^based in Dallas, Texas. He has taught at several colleges and seminaries, and served ^as Dean at Southern Evangelical Seminary. Dr. Nix currently serves at Veritas Evangelical ^Seminary, Murrieta, CA as Professor of Historical and Theological Studies and Director ^of Master of Theological Studies. He is also President of The Electronic Bible Society. ^Dr. Nix is co-author with Dr. Norman L. Geisler of From God to Us and A ^General Introduction to the Bible. In addition, Dr. Nix has edited several books ^and written numerous articles. He resides with his wife, Eulaine, in Dallas, Texas.


Where did the Bible come from? How do we know the right books are in ^the Bible? Does the Bible contain errors? What are the oldest copies we have of ^the Bible? How do we know that the Bible hasn't been changed over the years? Why ^are there so many translations of the Bible, and which one should I use?

These ^are just some of the important questions about the Bible that are discussed in this ^book. Understanding basic facts about the origin of the Bible is essential for every ^Christian, but it can also be confusing and difficult. Here, two well-known scholars, ^authors of a more technical book, A General Introduction to the Bible, ^explain simply and clearly these basic facts. Inspiration, the biblical canon, major ^manuscripts, textual criticism, early translations, and modern versions are some ^of the major topics discussed. Careful explanations of important points are given ^throughout, as the entire field of biblical introduction is covered.


Completely ^updated and revised edition of the 1974 work (more than 78,000 copies sold). Helpful ^charts have been added, along with an index of subjects, persons, and Scripture. ^

This book is ideally suited for Bible students, pastors, and professors. ^While writing for readers without previous training, the authors do not gloss over ^difficult and complex issues when they arise. The nature of inspiration, the extent ^of the canon, and the usefulness of modern versions are all clearly discussed.


The ^authors write: "The chain of communication from God to us is strong.  ^It has several solid links: inspiration, collection, transmission, and translations.  ^The strength of these links provide the contemporary Christian with the moral certitude ^that the Spirit-inspired original text of Scripture has been providentially preserved ^by God so that for all practical purposes the Bible in our hands is the infallible ^and inerrant word of God."

"The chain of communication from God to us is strong.  It has several ^solid links: inspiration, collection, transmission, and translations. Together, ^these four links provide the contemporary Christian with the moral certitude that ^the Spirit-inspired original text of Scripture has been providentially preserved ^by God, so that for all practical purposes the Bible in our hands is the infallible ^and inerrant word of God."


The Bible was written in multiple languages by ^dozens of authors whose lives spanned a period of more than fifteen hundred years. ^How did it all come together? Best-selling authors Norman Geisler and William Nix ^thoroughly answer this question and many more in this revised and expanded edition ^of a classic which has sold more than 78,000 copies. Helpful charts, photos, and ^indices have been added, rendering this book ideally suited for Bible students, ^pastors, and professors.


 


Major topics addressed include: inspiration, ^canonicity, major manuscripts and recent discoveries, textual criticism, Greek and ^Latin translations, and modern English translations. The entire field of general ^biblical introduction is covered.


  


"Throughout history ^God has given to us an inspired and inerrant word written in the languages of humanity. ^The Bible is the collection of that record of 'God-breathed' Scripture." - Norman ^Geisler and William Nix
