A really fantastic book! It is the single best collection of photos of religious art and artifacts I have ever seen. Literally and truly more interesting than the text it describes, this concise (relatively, considering the subject matter) and easy to read volume was fascinating. Following the lineage of how the Old and New Testaments were translated from their original languages (Hebrew and Greek respectively) to the modern languages today, the real-life historical disputes it involved, was fascinating to me, especially since I have become bilingual and have encountered the many questions and issues of translation myself. Also, to know how the content of these books was created, by whom, where and when - all fascinating. Great as an introduction to both the most important and the very obscure aspects of Bible history, I was very very impressed by this book.
