How the Bible Came to Be (Ebook Shorts)

How the Bible Came to Be (Ebook Shorts) - J. Daniel Hays,  J. Scott Duvall This short ebook was a freebie I downloaded on Kindle. As the title of the book says, it explores the origins of Scripture. I found it to be a helpful quick reference or refresher that would serve to whet the appetite for more information and deeper study. It would also be great for anyone who wanted a quick introduction to how we ended up with the Bible we have today.

The chapter titles are:
The Inspiration of the Bible
The Production and Shaping of the Old Testament Canon
Writing, Copying, and Transmitting the New Testament Text
The Canon of the NT, The Dead Sea Scrolls
The Septuagint, Bible Translations and the English Bible
Translations for the World.
