In this informative and well-researched book, Rev. Henry Grey Graham delves into the history of the Bible and explains the important role that the Catholic Church played in preserving and transmitting the sacred text throughout the centuries.

Graham outlines the intricate process by which the Bible was compiled, translated, and disseminated, highlighting the tireless efforts of early Christian scholars and monks in preserving the integrity of the biblical texts. He also dispels common misconceptions about the origins of the Bible, shedding light on the crucial role played by the Catholic Church in ensuring the accuracy and authenticity of the scriptures.

Overall, Where We Got the Bible is a compelling read for anyone interested in the history of the Bible and the development of Christian scripture. Graham's thorough research and clear writing make this book a valuable resource for understanding the origins of the Bible and the debt owed to the Catholic Church for its preservation.

Book Description:
In "Where We Got the Bible", the author, himself a convert from Calvinism, explains how the Catholic Church compiled the sacred text, how medieval monks preserved it, and how Catholic scholars first gave Christians the Bible in their own languages.

This little book about the Bible grew out of lectures which the writer delivered on the subject to mixed audiences. The lectures were afterwards expanded, and appeared in a series of articles in the Catholic press 1908-9, and are now with slight alterations reprinted. Their origin will sufficiently account for the colloquial style employed throughout.

There is, therefore, no pretense either of profound scholarship or of eloquent language; all that is attempted is a popular and, as far as possible, accurate exposition along familiar lines of the Catholic claim historically in regard to the Bible. It is candidly controversial without, however, let us hope, being uncharitable or unfair.
