What books make up the Bible and why? Who wrote the Bible? Who decided what should go in? How can we know that what is in the Bible is from God?

This short book answers some critical questions about the Word of God, helping us to understand where the Scriptures came from and why we can trust them. Covering the origins and translations of the Old and New Testaments, this straightforward introduction answers many questions, and provides suggestions for further reading if you want to research the topic further.

If you are looking for a readable, informed, and theologically–grounded explanation for where our Bibles came from, then this new volume by Greg Lanier is it.  Finally, we have an accessible book on the biblical canon that is answering the kind of questions ordinary Christians are asking. I highly recommend it.
