Description

Discover the story of the world's most consistently best-selling book, which came into being through a remarkable and complicated process. In 24 stimulating lectures, Professor Johnson investigates the many forms the Bible has taken and the ways history, scholarship, and technology have helped shape this great tradition, as well as the Bible's powerful influence on human history and culture.

The Bible has long served as a powerful force, both reflecting and shaping the cultures that have read and embraced it. Over the centuries, perceptions of the Bible have inspired men and women and shaped nations; they've sent nations to war and martyrs to their deaths. The struggle of translation has been a battleground for controlling the meaning of sacred text, a struggle that reached its peak during the Renaissance and the Enlightenment.

From the early history of the New Testament, when Hebrew and Greek sources built a new story on the foundation of the ancient Jewish tradition, to the world-changing invention of the printing press, a revolutionary innovation that contributed to the Protestant Reformation, this enthralling story gives you a deep appreciation for the tremendous power of this astonishing book - one that has endured through centuries and touched the lives of countless millions.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Good historical background

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend to those interested in or curious about (or misinformed about) how the Catholic/Christian Bible came about.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Most: The story, in general.
Least: LTJ's "I'm smarter than you; that's how it is; deal with it." attitude/tone.

What three words best describe Professor Luke Timothy Johnson’s performance?

Dry Arrogant Well-researched

Do you think The Story of the Bible needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

It needs a re-telling by someone other than LTJ; someone concerned about the subject matter AND the reader/listener (as opposed to himself and the subject matter).

Any additional comments?

I admit to having listened to several LTJ audiobooks. I have done so reluctantly because he does, in my humble opinion, research his topic, dig deeply into questions and details many others ignore or overlook and cover the entirety of the topic. His personal delivery style, however, leave me feeling negatively at many points, simply because he comes across as "talking down" to his audience.

What a Wonderful Class

Where does The Story of the Bible rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is in the top five.

Any additional comments?

This was a clear and balanced presentation of the bible for all denominations. The depth of knowledge Prof. Johnson shares is outstanding.

It was great to have someone who actually believes in Christ as our Lord actually give a class on Christianity on the "Great Courses".

Disappointing

The Great Courses series raised the bar of expectation on a previous title, then I came upon this one. It was informative, but completely lacking what I was looking for. Then the narrator had a distracting pause every 3-4 seconds that didn't let me focus. Just being honest : \

Decent but not great

Thought it wqs going to be centered more on the how the stories in the bible were gathered, what determined which ones went in there and such. It also wasn't in chronological order. It started getting into more of the effects of the bible and such. I just thought it was going to be more focused on the creation of the bible.

Good content, bad implementation

Audibles's unwillingness to name the chapters aporopriately causes one to waste quite a bit of time hubting for the chaptet one wanta to review. The longer the course, the worst the experience. Spoken to them. No apparent interest in solving issue.
