What is the Bible?

The Bible is the most published book of all time.  A Latin Vulgate copy of the Bible was one of the first books printed on the original German Guttenberg Press in the fifteenth century in 1440.  The Bible has been translated into virtually every human language.  What a strange great literary work, or more precisely a series of books, that has had a profound effect on the world.  In fact, most of the great works of Western European civilization assume some biblical knowledge.  The Bible serves as the source book or “Word of God” for over two billion people living today.  Thus, the Bible is often considered “the book of books”.
