Very GOOD

One of the best books on the history of the scriptures. Everybody needs to have knowledge of the canon of the Bible.

Too Verbose Not Enough "Big Picture" Bible History

If you're looking for a concise history of how the bible as we know it came together, you'll be disappointed. In my opinion, the author is an intellectual who uses entirely too many words. After 2 hours, I finally gave up listening. Maybe I'm inpatient, but if an author can't grab my attention from the first or second chapter, I'm not sure I want to read his book. It's definitely not what I would classify as a "good book." I was really hoping to find a decent audio version about bible history, but I guess I'll have to resort to reading, perhaps the book, "The Story of the Bible" by Larry Stone.
