The Story of the Bible: The Fascinating History of Its Writing, Translation & Effect on Civilization by Larry Stone is a wonderful resource to help you learn more about the Bible and how it came to be. It presents stories of those that sacrificed, some going so far as to giving their lives, to make the Bible available to God’s people. It is extremely interesting and grabs the reader’s attention from the very beginning.
Another wonderful feature of this volume is the 23 removable document recreations that accompany the text. They include reproductions of pages from some of history’s most important Bibles, such as the Gutenberg Bible, Book of Kells, Codex Sinaiticus and portions of the Dead Sea Scrolls. These documents add a significant amount of historical significance to this volume.
I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about the Bible and how it came to be. It will provide hours of enjoyment to the entire family!
