|外文书名||The Indestructible Book: The Bible, Its Translators, and Their Sacrifices|
|Author||W. Kenneth Connolly|
|Number of Pages||250千字；188页|
This beautifully illustrated book provides a conservative Protestant overview of the history of the Bible, from its origin to the early 20th century. Connolly connects the Bible's story to the larger human drama, a story of courageous men and women, the spread of learning, and the technological and social revolution that started with the printing press. He offers the Jewish and ecclesiastical history necessary to understand the writing, preservation, and translation of the Bible. For instance, he briefly describes the Crusades because they indirectly prepared the overthrow of church-state control of religion and brought an infusion of scholars and thinkers to the West, which in turn gave reformers the tools to understand the Bible. Color photographs of everything from archaeological remains to woodcuts and cathedrals help the book to come alive. Highly recommended as a basic introduction.
This softcover book contains the same content as the hardbound edition which is now out of print.
