How were certain books selected for inclusion in the Bible, while others were excluded? How were the texts of scripture preserved and transmitted over the centuries? What do different people mean when they talk about the Bible in terms such as “Word of God,” “inspired,” authoritative”? How far back do such treatments of biblical texts go, and what other meaningful lenses are there through which to approach these texts?
