9780741429933: How the Bible Became the Bible

How did a collection of scrolls, laws, songs, poems, narratives, and letters get put together, declared sacred, and called the Holy Bible? The author makes the case that our human nature has always had a strong desire for simplistic, black-and-white, religious beliefs – a desire to know that one’s right. This quells doubt and, as such, is fear-based. This inclination had its beginnings in the Old Testament, led to abuses in Israel’s Temple-State system, and influenced the documents that were eventually included and excluded from the New Testament.

As an ordained United Presbyterian minister, he served as a street-gang minister in Trenton, NJ and had two pastorates in Oklahoma. He continued to serve smaller congregations after he joined the private sector in business. Semi-retired, he resides in Florida where he continues his proposal consulting business. Additionally, he is active in a New Thought congregation.
