Few know the story of the Bible’s assembly and canonization. Next, how was the New Testament compiled? What is the correct order of books? Should Apocryphal books be included? Did God preserve the Bible completely?
Is the Bible complete without the Apocrypha or other obscure writings? Does evidence exist that these documents belong in God’s Word?

Section I of this booklet explains the amazing story of how God preserved His Word! Also, God commands us to seek His kingdom first and to search the Scriptures—the Bible—daily. But how can we do this if it has not been translated into the language of the common people? Section II explains which of the 70 English translations produced today you should use.
