The Story of the Bible by Peter Whitfield

The Story of the Bible

by Peter Whitfield

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
2 Hrs. 38 Min.


History or myth? The word of God or the words of men? What is the Bible? This history, especially written for this recording, describes clearly and concisely how the Bible came into being, what it contains, and its appearance in the ancient languages of Aramaic, Hebrew, Greek, and Latin.

After 400 years, the King James Version remains a religious text and a literary epic, though many other translations before and since - William Tyndale, the Good News Bible - have influenced generations. This fascinating, accessible introduction places the Bible in its religious and cultural context, showing why men lived and died in its shadow.
