Synopsis: From Moses to modern Bible societies, The Indestructible Book tells the impact of one book on the human race. The book connects the Bible's story to the larger human drama, a story of courageous men and women, the spread of learning, and the technological and social revolution that started with the printing press.

From Library Journal: This beautifully illustrated book provides a conservative Protestant overview of the history of the Bible, from its origin into the early 20th century. Connolly (Biographical Sketch of C.H. Spurgeon, Pilgrim, 1990) offers the Jewish and ecclesiastical history that he judges necessary to understand the writing, preservation, and translation of the Bible. For instance, he briefly describes the Crusades because they indirectly prepared the overthrow of church-state control of religion and brought an infusion of scholars and thinkers to the West, which in turn gave reformers the tools to understand the Bible. The overview is generally quite good, though necessarily simplistic, and it does raise interesting points; for example, that heresies served a beneficial purpose by stimulating Christian theology. Color photographs of everything from archaeological remains to woodcuts and cathedrals abound. Highly recommended as a very basic introduction for those who will not be offended by the strong Protestant viewpoint.?Eugene O. Bowser, Univ. of Northern Colorado, Greeley
