From the 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 and many more in this revised and expanded edition of a classic which has sold more than 78,000 copies. Helpful charts, photos, and indices have been added, rendering 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 entire field of general biblical introduction is covered.
“Throughout history God has given to us an inspired and inerrant word written in the languages of humanity. The Bible is the collection of that record of ‘God-breathed’ Scripture.” - Norman Geisler and William Nix

The book was also delivered on time and in excellent quality.
This book was recommended by a pastor friend when I told him I was seeking help in proving the authenticity of our Holy Bible as a historically accurate and trustworthy document.
I have a great number of self proclaimed angry-atheists challenging me for proofs and cotations that I didn't have. I didn't... But NOW I do.
This one source is very detailed and at times more academic than some people would like to hear, however it is thorough. When it comes to confronting s mocker, I believe one can easily find more than enough proof to start knocking down barriers of unbelief.
In my opinion this reference is a MUST for anyone studying the Bible and all those who defend the truthful history and collection of works that make up our Holy Scriptures.
