The Bible through the Ages

The Bible through the Ages

  • Hardcover
  • English
By (author) 

Sweeping in scope and alive with fascinating information, The Bible Through the Ages presents an unparalleled look at the Bible, the most influential work in human history. You'll get fresh insights into: the story of Abraham and how he came to worship one God; the development of writing that offered an exciting new way of preserving biblical tradition; the conquests of David and the building of Solomon's Temple and how these events spurred biblical writing; the four Gospels and the men who wrote them; and the spread of the Gospel from the end of the first century to the end of the second millennium.
Drawing on the latest scholarly research and archeological finds, The Bible Through the Ages sheds light on the editorial decisions that shaped the Bible and the controversies that often surrounded them. It discusses the significance of the Dead Sea Scrolls and what they teach us about the text of the Bible.
In these pages, you'll discover how the words of the Bible were preserved - from early Hebrew texts of the Old Testament to the translations of the New Testament from Greek into Latin and the vernacular languages of Europe.
The people who spread the Word are here, too: ancient scholars who collected letters, histories, songs, and poems into a single volume of sacred writings; monks who painstakingly copied the texts during the Middle Ages; and the fearless missionaries who carried the Bible and its message to remote corners of the earth.
Photographs, maps, and reconstructions of ancient sites transport you back in time and place. Magnificent illuminations from medieval manuscripts, finely sewn tapestries, and master works of art demonstrate the impact of the Bible on the creative imagination throughout the centuries.
