Many times I have been asked how the Bible came to be and who selected the specific writings that are in included in the present day Bible. Also, there are more books in the Catholic Bible than in the Protestant Bible! Why is this so?
I found a very well written article on the internet that answers these and many more questions about the composition of the Bible and I thought it may be of interest to you. The article is actually an excerpt from "The Doctrines That Divide" by Erwin W. Lutzer. You can access this article by clicking on the link below. I hope you find it as interesting as I did!
