Inspiration to Ink: The Big Picture of How We Got the Bible
The inspired Word of God was revealed to approximately 35 writers who wrote the 66 books that comprise the Bible. Filled with history, poetry, admonitions, and instructions for our eternal salvation, the Bible went through an amazing process that eventually led us to the book we hold so dear today. In Inspiration to Ink, Mike Wilson deftly moves from those earliest revelations that God made to man through to the printed materials we can purchase or read online in the 21st century.
Readers will learn about how the Word was passed down and transcribed, while noting beautiful images of vintage Bibles from the author's personal collection. See how Scripture came to life in the pages of this new study from Mike Wilson.
A Teacher Supplement is also available.
