Item Description...
From God to Us, you will learn basic facts about the origin of the Bible. These facts are explained in a simple, clear style. This book also includes a discussion on the nature of inspiration, textual criticism, and various translations. About the Authors. Norman L. Geisler is a professor of systematic theology at Dallas Theological Seminary. William E. Nix is an editorial and educational consultant based in Dallas, Texas. He and Dr. Geisler have also authored the book A General Introduction to the Bible.

Publishers Description
Where did the Bible come from? How do we know the right books are in the Bible? Does the Bible contain errors? What are the oldest copies we have of the Bible? How do we know that the Bible hasn't been changed over the years? Why are there so many translations of the Bible, and which one should I use? These are just some of the important questions about the Bible that are discussed in this book. Understanding basic facts about the origin of the Bible is essential for every Christian, but it can also be confusing and difficult. Here two well-known scholars, authors of a more technical book A General Introduction to the Bible, explain simply and clearly these basic facts. Inspiration, the biblical canon, major manuscripts, textual criticism, early translations, and modern versions are some of the major topics discussed. Careful explanations of important points are given throughout, as the entire field of biblical introduction is covered. Clearly organized, the book is ideally suited for Bible study groups, Sunday school classes, and personal study. While writing for laymen without previous training, the authors do not gloss over difficult and complex issues when they arise. The nature of inspiration, the extent of the canon, and the usefulness of modern versions are all clearly discussed.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Paul M. Tucker  Mar 8, 2007
"From God to Us" consists of 20 short chapters, the first 5 chapters deal with Inspiration, chapters 6-10 deals with the "Canon", and the concluding chapters deal with various "Manuscript" evidence. From page 7 to the last page are 248 pages of very interesting reading. It is well written, and contains a host of sources within the text. It lacks a final bibliography. While one may not agree with all facets of this book, it is a good read and provides very good source material for small group dicussion.
Conservative and Well Written  Mar 3, 2006
I am using this in conjunction with a class I'm teaching in my church on the doctrine of the Bible. I appreciate the conservative position, holding to the inerrancy of Scripture. The book is neither difficult to read nor overly simplistic. I agree with a previous reviewer that an update would be nice - it would be helpful to have more on modern translations such as the NIV, etc.
Still in print after all these years  Feb 6, 2001
Geisler and Nix write what might be considered to be a classic on textual criticism. It is not impossible to read and should be understood by the average layperson who is not frightened of reading. They deal with everything from inspriation, canonicity of both the OT and NT, the major manuscripts, and translations of the Bible. It's probably as good an overall view of textual criticism as there is out there. With no updates since its original 1974 printing, and since the authors are still alive, I would challenge them to update the book for future generations, especially since there have been some new finds and translations made during the past quarter of a century. Updating shouldn't be that hard to do, and they would help preserve a valuable book for the years to come (when they are no longer around). If you have ever had anyone criticize the Bible ("how do we know it's translated correctly?"), this might be a good place to start to get some answers.
