Reviews - What do customers think about How We Got the Bible: A Visual Journey (Zondervan Visual Reference Series)?
Nice book Dec 21, 2009
An informative to the point type of book. Great pictures. I like that it is not a novel size text. Quick and easy information to add to your other books on the study that you might have.
A Fascinating Exploration of the Origin of the Bible (in Full Color) Dec 4, 2008
We live in a visual society. People like to "see" the history they are learning about--this is one of the reasons that the Discovery and History channels are so popular. Combine vivid, full-color images and a fascinating topic like "how we got the Bible" with a top notch New Testament scholar and you have a great book indeed.
There is a lot packed into this 96 page survey. For example there are images of the oldest manuscripts that have been discovered, discussion of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the transmission of the text, the history of translations, the apocrypha, various attempts to destroy or ban the Bible, the first Bible printed in America (and the list goes on).
There is a lot of hype and confusion today about the Bible. Has the Bible been accurately translated and passed down to the 21st century? What about missing Gospels? This is an enjoyable place to start exploring those questions with a seasoned guide.
How We Got the Bible is not text heavy, but provides enough substance to keep the reader interested, informed, and following the line of thought. Highly recommended!!!
