The Story Of The Bible: The Fascinating History Of It’s Writing, Translation And Effect On Civilization
By: Larry Stone
The Story Of The Bible, written by Larry Stone (endorsed by Ravi Zacharias and Darrell Bock) was much better than I expected. The book itself is beautiful. The author has a very to the point and informative style which I like. This book also does a good job of addressing the history of The Bible in the short it uses.
To start with, the book itself is exceptional. It is a very large, wax paper, fully illustrated treatment of the topic. It comes complete with inserts in envelopes with further pictures and information on them which create an excellent supplement to the text.
As to the content, the text is very easy to read. It’s not technical and difficult as some books. At the same time the content is very scholarly satisfying. Good and accurate information is found throughout. This book addresses how and when the original Bible was written, it’s translations and it’s history throughout the ages of the Church. A very brief but very informative synopsis of the topic.
In short, this is an excellent book. Anyone interested in The Bible should surely find it a fulfilling read. I would definitely recommend this book. Whether your interested in how we got our current Bible, church history or just an enjoyable book, this is the book for you.
