Noted authors Norman L. Geisler and William E. Nix have updated and expandedA General Introduction to the Bible. This volume exemplifies careful scholarship, clarity of style, and comprehensive treatment of its subject.
The key subject areas covered are inspiration (Who wrote the Bible?), canonization (Which books belong in it?), transmission (Has it been accurately preserved?), and translation (Has it been adequately translated?). New charts have been added and others revised throughout the book. In addition to a thorough revision of the entire book, new sections have been included dealing with the history of the doctrine of inspiration, contemporary theories of revelation and inspiration, current discussion of the inerrancy of the Bible, recent trends in textual criticism, and a review of modern English Bible translations, as well as an appendix listing more than 1,100 published English Bible translations.
