The Bible: Its Origin, Preservation, and Impact
FLEX Adult Bible Study Curriculum
In His wisdom, God provided us with a clear path of His expectations for us. He oversaw and guided the process of the formation of His written instructions and encouragements for us. This process resulted in the sixty-six books of the Bible as we know them today.
Mark Adams offers a guided tour of the Bible's unique history from its inspired creation to its preservation and translation. He makes a compelling case for the accuracy and reliability of the Bible, and helps us appreciate the life-changing power of the Word of God.
