Title: Bible, the: a History Author: MILLER STEPHEN/HUBER ROBERT Format: HARDCOVER Imprint: GOOD BOOKS PA Price: $19.95 Publishing status: Active
From the time of oral tradition through the first written scriptures, and from the era of illuminated manuscripts through the Good Book's adaptation for motion pictures, the Bible has had a history as remarkable as the events it describes. Recounting the story of the Israelites as well as that of the early Christian church, Stephen Miller and Robert Huber also discuss the efforts of missionaries in spreading Christianity, and examine trends in how the Bible has been translated, criticized, and misused. Among the individuals profiled here are Josephus, Saint Francis, Martin Luther, and William Tyndale, while other chapters are devoted to such topics as the Apocrypha, Gnosticism, the Reformation, and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Numerous sidebars include additional information, while nearly every page features color images of artwork and ancient artifacts.
