Tesh, S. Edward. How We Got Our Bible (published in 1961 by the Standard Publishing Company, Cincinnati, OH). This excellent little booklet (96 pages) by Bible scholar Samuel Edward Tesh is divided into three sections. “What the Bible Is and How It Was Written” contains six chapters on the history of the Bible writings themselves. “How the Bible Was Assembled, Transmitted, and Preserved” has three chapters on the putting together of the Bible as we know it in the ancient manuscripts. “How the Bible Came into Our Own Language” consists of four chapters dealing with the translation of the Bible. This book provides answers to the oft-made objections that the early church just randomly chose from the religious writings available at the time to compile the Bible and that we have no way of knowing whether we really have what was originally written anyway. There are “Think It Over” questions and some additional assignments at the end of each chapter.
