Did the early church leaders deliberately suppress writings about Jesus from the Bible because they would have threatened their power? Why are there different Catholic and Protestant versions of the Bible? Henry Wansbrough tells the story of why some writings came to be accepted as part of the Bible and other not. He describes how the Bible was translated into a single Latin version which was the standard text for a thousand years and the hard-fought battle which forged the incomparable monument of the first Bible in English.

The Book Depository

Book Description Darton,Longman & Todd Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. There is a growing interest in the gnostic and other non-canonical Christian writings from the first centuries of the Church, and increased curiosity (and suspicion of conspiracies and cover-ups) about how the canon of the Bible came to be settled and why there are different Protestant and Catholic versions. Should the so-called 'Apocryphal' Books be regarded as part of the Bible or not? Did the early Church deliberately suppress alternative gospels because they would have threatened its power? The Story of the Bible is an authoritative, balanced and entertaining introduction to the controversial story of how the Bible 'arrived', by a leading international biblical scholar.
