This is an narrative of the development of the Bible, from the earliest manuscripts to the 20th century. It includes the story of the translation of the Bible into English, the 'Higher Criticism' of the 19th century, and presents the Bible in historical and social context. This serves as a short but detailed introduction to the subject, well worth reading whatever one's views on the Bible.

In this book, you'll encounter a Jesus you may have never met before -- a Jesus who not only calls for spiritual transformation, but for practical changes that answer the most perplexing political, economic, and social problems of our time.
English translation of the Christian Bible first published in 1611. In 1604, King James I convened the Hampton Court Conference where a new English version was conceived in response to the perceived problems of the earlier translations.

The book goes to the root: our relationship with God, and the defining power of that relationship over all others in our lives. Includes chapters on sex, alternatives to dating, parenthood, singleness, homosexuality, abortion, divorce and remarriage.

This book is a story, not an academic treatise. The author has never been committed to a lifetime of study and involvement in Christianity and hence must be considered a dilettante in this field. This does give him the advantage of being objective.
