Larry Stone’s The Story of the Bible is a beautifully illustrated history— from parchment to print—of the world’s all-time bestselling book.
The Bible’s words are studied, challenged and treasured, bringing comfort to countless millions. Many have lost their lives for it—in1536, for instance, William Tynsdale was strangled and burned at the stake for publishing the New Testament in English.
With an introduction by Ravi Zacharias, this remarkable book tells the story of the Bible’s writing, translation and effect on civilization, answering such questions as: How accurate are the transcripts ? Do all translations say the same thing? Was America really founded on the Bible? Why are the Dead Sea Scrolls important?
The Old Testament, the New Testament, the canonization of the Scriptures and the stories of those who gave their lives to make the Bible available to all is here. Reported with reverence and accuracy, The Story of the Bible features 90 color images and 23 stunning, life-size and removable facsimiles of ancient biblical texts.
Beautifully designed and historically accurate, The Story of the Bible is destined to become a treasured heirloom for generations to come.
