How We Got the Bible

How We Got the Bible by Neil R. Lightfoot

I read this book hoping to get some material for teaching a session on the compilation of the Bible. Though the book didn't give me a great teaching outline, it did provide some very good data and very good discussion questions.

Just a few dog-ears:

pg. 103 - discussion questions on textual variations
pg. 180 - quote re: popularity of early English translations - "People flocked eagerly to the churches to see the Bibles which had been set up for reading, and at times the preachers complained because the people chose rather to hear the reading of the Bible than to listen to their sermons."
