f WHOSE BIBLE IS IT?
A History of the Scriptures
Through the Ages
“The distillation of wise reflection from a master
in the field of Church History. It is...a book by a
Christian, but a Christian who is fully at ease
with the various revolutions which have
occurred in understanding and using the Bible
in the two centuries, and he talks about these
with tact and accuracy. A very good feature is the
author's acute sensitivity to Christianity's relationship with Judaism and what that does to
their overlapping sacred books.”—Diarmaid
MacCulloch, author of The Reformation.
