ONE BUCK BOOK: How We Got the Bible 
From Rose Publishing


How We Got the Bible - increase your faith in the reliability of the Bible
Few stories in history are as amazing and as touching as the story of how the Bible was written and became the book we have today. How We Got the Bible will take you through the remarkable story that shows the faithfulness, courage, and sacrifice that was required to make the Bible available to us today.

How We Got the Bible eBook can be read in 30 minutes or less and includes:
• A time line of events and people in the history of the Scriptures
• Examples and illustrations of ancient writing materials
• A look at the variety of Bibles available today
• Inspiring stories of early translators who gave their lives to translate and print the Bible, including William Tyndale, John Wycliffe, King James, Erasmus, and Johann Gutenberg
• Why the Dead Sea Scrolls give evidence that the Old Testament was transmitted accurately through the years

• Ten key points on how we got the Bible
• Illustrations of ancient documents created on papyrus and fine animal skins, as well as the first printing press
• A time line that follows the emergence of the Scriptures, beginning in 2000 BC, and each major step taken in publishing the Bible through 2000 AD

How We Got the Bible will encourage every believer and will increase your faith in the reliability of the Bible. The eBook reveals how the Old and New Testaments were communicated through a variety of forms, beginning as early as 1500 BC when they were written on stone, clay and leather, and later on papyrus and fine animal skins. How We Got the Bible presents solid reasons we can trust the reliability of the Bible: for example, how earliest Bible manuscripts were intricately copied by hand and how ancient texts, such as the Dead Sea Scrolls, validate the earliest manuscripts.

The time line in How We Got the Bible shows the remarkable and fascinating history of the Bible, beginning in 2000 BC with Old Testament writers. The time line captures key moments in the creation of the Bible, including:
• The translation of the Septuagint, the Hebrew Old Testament, translated into Greek in 500 BC
• The collection of the 27 Books of the New Testament and formal confirmation of the Canon in 300 AD
• The first English translation of the Bible by John Wycliffe in 1300
• The King James Version of the Bible written in 1611
• The discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls in 1947
• The creation of dozens of modern versions of the Bible through 2008

How We Got the Bible is a fascinating eBook that will solidify your trust in God’s word and increase your faith in God.

"Without [How We Got the Bible], I can only cite one truth with certainty - that is, 'God is God! He created the whole universe and if He can do that He can certainly preserve His word' - and He has done that. For some that will be enough, but if your listener is still skeptical, this booklet is priceless.
