Los Angeles, CaliforniaHow We Got the Bible has been honored as a finalist in the Bible Reference category of the Christian Book Awards for 2016.

Where did the Bible come from? Can you trust its reliability? Through seven dynamic chapters in How We Got the Bible, expert Dr. Timothy Paul Jones guides readers through all the important questions about the history of the Bible and why it can be trusted.

Featuring dramatic stories, time lines, highly visual charts, and illustrations, this 184-page Bible apologetics handbook shows key information at a glance as it dives into the history of the Bible and how it came to be. Covering Wycliffe, Tyndale, Gutenberg, and many others, Rose’s easy-to-understand How We Got the Bible handbook takes its readers from the earliest clay tablets and papyrus copies to the first bound Bible and the various Bible translations that we use today!

Perfect for individuals, Bible study groups, and church reference use, the How We Got the Bible handbook is just one of many of Dr. Timothy Paul Jones’ resources on biblical reliability. Last summer Rose Publishing also released an entire 6-session How We Got the Bible DVD kit on how the Bible came to be.

Finalists in the “Best Bible Reference” category were selected for being scholarly and well researched as well as fresh and compelling. Design and impact were additional criteria.

The Evangelical Christian Publishers Association’s panel of expert judges analyzed books in five categories and determined the honor. Five finalists were selected within the Bible Reference category, and winners will be announced on May 3rd at the ECPA Leadership Summit/Industry Awards Night in Nashville, TN. One title will be selected from the finalists to receive ECPA’s top honor: Christian Book of the Year.

Author Dr. Timothy Paul Jones currently serves as professor and associate vice president at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He also is an editor of The Journal of Discipleship and Family Ministry and has authored more than a dozen books on Bible apologetics, family ministry, and Christian history.

Dr. Jones has previously received recognition for his book Christian History Made Easy, collecting the 2010 awards for Book of the Year in Christian Education from both Christian Retailing Magazine and ECPA.
