If there is one book that has always been under attack, it is the Bible, the book of the Millennia. It is the most widely circulated book and the book that has been translated into more languages (in entirety or in part) than any other book (more than 2000 languages). It is the book that has given birth to modern-western civilization and the scientific enterprise. It is the book that has shaped and transformed not just individuals but nations. Different groups and individuals have leveled the attack on this book in different ways at different times throughout history. The French philosopher Voltaire once said that there would come a time when no one would read this book. But quite humorously his own property was bought by the French Bible Society (after his death) and millions of copies of the Bible have been distributed from there and even Dan Brown’s book Da Vinci Code can’t come anywhere close to the Bible as far as the publication and sales records of a book are concerned. The most commonly raised questions are about the origin, transmission, preservation, and reliability of the Bible and in this essay we will examine the same issues.
