|Summary, etc.:|| Annotation Due to its singular importance as a sacred text to millions of believers, the Christian Bible is often regarded as an entity unto itself that came into being in one fell swoop. However, as author Ernest Sutherland Bates reminds us, nothing could be further from the truth. The Bible was a work in progress for thousands of years, and the versions that most Christians read today have gone through dozens of translations and renderings. Biography of the Bible presents the remarkable story of how this book came to be.
