This new paperback edition aims to introduce readers to the "remarkable story" of how the Bible came to be, how it survived, and how it changed the world. Miller (a Protestant) and Huber (a Catholic) present their material topically in two-page spreads containing illustrations and informational text boxes, and make a sincere effort to present an ecumenical narrative (well accepted by evangelicals) using a variety of academic approaches.
This beautifully illustrated book is divided into five sections:
- * The Old Testament Takes Shape
- * The New Testament Takes Shape
- * The Bible in a Rapidly Growing Church
- * The Book of the Reformation
- * The Bible in the Modern World
The sections cover topics such as the oral tradition, the use of papyrus, settling the Jewish Bible, first-century letter writing, selecting the New Testament, Jerome's Latin Bible, illuminating a manuscript, printing the Bible, the King James Version, modern biblical criticism, the Bible societies, and the Bible in moving pictures.
