Synopsis

Adventure-filled narrative untangles the intriguing web of people and events that shaped history's most powerful book. From the earliest oral traditions to ink on parchment and ultimately the printing press, this is the story behind the best-selling book of all time.


Original texts were captured and passed down from generation to generation by elders and leaders, many inked by hand in extreme conditions. Christians and Jews canonized the Christian, Catholic, and Hebrew Bibles over a period of thousands of years. Devoted people dedicated their lives throughout time to put this unique book into the hands of people worldwide. Retrace the passion and intrigue behind the Bible's creation.
