From back cover:

"The chain of communication from God to us is strong. It has several solid links: inspiration, collection, transmission, and translations. Together, these four links provide the contemporary Christian with the moral certitude that the Spirit-inspired original text of Scripture has been providentially preserved by God, so that for all practical purposes the Bible in our hands is the infallible and inerrant word of God."

The Bible was written in multiple languages by dozens of authors whose lives spanned a period of more than fifteen hundred years. How did it all come together? Best selling authors Norman Geisler and William Nix thoroughly answer this question in this revised and expanded edition of a classic that has sold more than 78,000 copies. Helpful charts, photos, and indices have been added, making this book ideally suited for Bible students, pastors, and professors.

Major topics addressed include: inspiration, canonicity, major manuscripts and recent discoveries, textual criticism, Greek and Latin translations, and modern English translations. The authors provide a complete introduction to the Bible's origin, history, and development.
