Welcome to the fascinating story of how we got the world’s greatest book — the Bible.

It is a captivating story that includes a little bit of everything: adventure and violence, mystery and bravery, and dumb luck or divine intervention — depending on your point of view.

How in the world did we get this book that some people swear by and other people swear at? You don’t have to be a skeptic to have a grocery list of questions about the formation of the Bible, such as:

  • Who wrote these documents and when?
  • How were these ancient writings transmitted through the ages?
  • As scribes made copies of copies, didn’t they make mistakes that caused the ancient writings to be changed and corrupted?
  • How was it decided which writings would be included in the Bible?
  • What are the Dead Sea Scrolls, and why are archaeological finds like these such a big deal?

Devoted people dedicated their lives throughout time to put this unique book into the hands of people worldwide. Retrace the passion and intrigue behind the Bible’s creation.
