Today we are faced with an almost bewildering range of different versions of the Bible, from Protestant and Catholiic Bibles, to Study Bibles and Bibles without commentary. How did they originate and in what ways do they differ? In this work, J.W. Rogerson investigates the many variants of the Bible, including the different translation, examining their origins and historical context and comparing the source material and authorship of each one. Taking the reader through the books of the Old and New testaments, Rogerson explores the various styles of writing such as narrative, psalms, letters and laments, together with the composition of the Gospels and the historical, political and religious backgrounds against which they were composed.
