Some people go their entire lives without giving much thought to how the holy book they hold so dear came to be. It would be nice to imagine that an angel flew to earth and handed someone – perhaps the Apostle John – a ready-made Bible with all the approved books contained within, written in fancy-sounding English. Unfortunately, the question of Biblical inspiration – and the resulting questions of interpretation and translation that come with it – are much more complicated than that.
