How Our Bible Came to Us: Its Texts and Versions

Excerpt

When I was invited to write a book on the general line of how we gòt our Bible, my inclination was to refuse. This was a job for experts. But later I was persuaded to attempt the task. There might be some advantage, I thought, in having a book written by a parish priest, in closer touch, perhaps, with the needs of ordinary Christians and the questions they are asking, than those who are engaged in full-time biblical study and research. Upon the work of these experts this book is everywhere dependent, as a continual series of footnotes will sufficiently indicate.

I should like to thank the Librarian of Doncaster Public Library for help in obtaining books which I did not possess.
