Where Did the Bible Come From?
Fr. Gregory Williams
Nearly any conversation with a protestant Christian is certain, sooner or later, to lead to an assertion that he believes only according to what (he thinks) the Bible says. Rarely is any serious attention given to how this holy Book came to be in his hands. This brief account explores that history (leaving detailed documentation to other, more scholarly, works), and shows how it is that the Bible is the “child” of the Church — not the other way around.
