Whose Bible Is It?: A Short History of the Scriptures

   
Jaroslav Pelikan

“In a sense, Whose Bible Is It? may be said to use the ‘history of the Scriptures through the ages’ to tell how[...]various Bibles are the same, but also how and why each of them is different—not only initially in what it contains but also in how it has been read and understood, and to explain why that is still important. The history of Jewish–Christian relations, and then the history of the divisions within Christendom, is at one level the history of biblical interpretation. The parties have faced each other across a sacred page that they held in common but that only served to emphasize their separation. [...]It is essential to recognize the importance—but also the limitations—of these issues of doctrine and biblical interpretation in our understanding of how Christians and Jews have viewed each other, and of how Christians have viewed other Christians.”
—“Introduction: The Bible, the Whole Bible, and Nothing but the Bible?”
