9781587761041: Origin and History of the Books of the Bible

In 1867, Professor C.E. Stowe, (Doctor of Divinity) first advanced his extensive treatise on the origins and history of the books that made up the New Testament. Including what he called both the "canonical and apocryphal," Stowe aimed to show what the Bible "is not, what it is, and how to use it." Viewing the Bible through the clear, non-electric lens of the mid-1800s, Stowe offers a fascinating investigation of the most important texts of the past twenty centuries.
