This is the 1986 revised and expanded edition, with an excellent background for the serious student of the Bible. The work is divided into four major sections. Part One: The inspiration of the Bible. Part Two: Canonization of the Bible. Part Three: Transmission of the Bible. Part Four: Translation of the Bible. In addition there are a number of useful study helps. This book, in a single volume provides a strong historical foundation for biblical studies, and includes the additional revisions that evaluates the English Bible translations made since 1968. An appendix lists over 1100 English Bible translations.

“Inspiration is that mysterious process by which the divine causality worked through the human prophets without destroying their individual personalities and styles to produce divinely authoritative and inerrant writings.” (Page 39)

“Inspiration indicates how the Bible received its authority, whereas canonization tells how the Bible received its acceptance.” (Page 202)

“So, in biblical terminology, inspiration is the process by which Spirit-moved writers recorded God-breathed writings.” (Page 36)

“In a real sense, Christ is the key to the inspiration and canonization of the Scriptures. It was He who confirmed the inspiration of the Hebrew canon of the Old Testament; and it was He who promised that the Holy Spirit would direct the apostles into all truth.” (Page 207)

“First, ‘inspiration,’ derived from inspirare (Latin), means ‘to breathe upon or into something.’” (Pages 30–31)

    I'm not sure how long this resource is--Logos stops pagination after page 604--but it is massive; an awesome deal/page! It took me a long time to read this cover to cover--I got "info saturated" several times and had to take a break and come back weeks later. This provides in-depth coverage of inspiration, canonization, transmission, and translation of the Bible--in many forms. I read it because Geisler wrote it; it's many many references (not all Logos tagged :-( ) led me in turn to put many, many more Logos references on my reading list. It probably wasn't meant to be read cover-to-cover...but that's just the kind of encyclopedial guy I am...
