How We Got Our Bible and Why We Believe It Is God's Word

How was the collection of the sixty-six books known as the Bible canonized by the Church? On what basis is it qualified as the Word of God? Why is it considered as Inspired? What is Inspiration and what part does it play in Revelation? What makes the Bible unique? Have you every seriously thought about these questions?  

The links below are to work entitled "How We Got Our Bible and Why We Believe It Is God's Word" by the late W. H. Griffith Thomas. The work dates from 1926 and is in the public domain. Regardless, it is 100% relevant for the Christian today. It is a very exhaustive and comprehensive study, but well worth the effort. I recommend you bookmark this index and plan to spend a considerable amount of time and prayer ingesting this study about the history of our Bible.

These lessons have been transcribed from the original .pdf document format to HTML5 for desktop and mobile browser reading. There is a link at the bottom of each page to download and save the original .pdf document to your desktop computer.
