Anyone going into a bookshop to buy a Bible will not only find different translations but in some cases differing contents! Why is this so? This Introduction works back through the processes by which the Bible was written, transmitted, copied and declared to be authoritative by various churches. The following topics are dealt with: What is the Bible?; How Biblical Writers Wrote; The Making of the Old Testament; The Making of the Apocrypha; The Making of the New Testament; The Canon of the Bible; The Study of the Bible; The Use of the Bible in Social, Moral and Political Questions.
This third edition takes account of developments in scholarship since the appearance of the second edition (Equinox, 2005). It has been thoroughly revised and, especially in the chapters on the Making of the Old and New Testaments, considerably enlarged.
