A History of the Scriptures Through the Ages
Jaroslav Pelikan (1923-2006) was Sterling Professor of History Emeritus at Yale University:

“Tradition is the living faith of the dead; traditionalism is the dead faith of the living." ______________

Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor, Foreign Missionary, Prominent Evangelist, or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians. Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ____________

Whose Bible Is It? is a triumph of scholarship that is also a pleasure to read.
Jaroslav Pelikan, widely regarded as one of the most distinguished historians of our day, now provides a clear and engaging account of the Bible’s journey from oral narrative to Hebrew and Greek text to today’s countless editions.
Pelikan explores the
evolution of the Jewish,
Protestant, and Catholic
versions and the development of the printing press and its effect on the
Reformation, the translation into modern languages, and varying
schools of critical scholarship.
"An engaging and
highly readable survey of biblical scholarship that tells a fascinating
and complex story."
