How did a set of books written in multiple languages by dozens of authors across thousands of years become the Bible we know and trust today? How were the books chosen? How well was the text hand copied and how is it translated into English?

Explore the answers to these questions and more with Scribes & Scripture, a series of talks by Dr. John Meade and Dr. Peter Gurry on the history of the Bible. Whether you’re a skeptic looking for answers, or a believer looking to strengthen your faith, this conference is designed for you.
