Bible

Just about every human alive has heard of the Bible. Nearly everyone knows it is the main Christian scripture, and that more books of the Bible have been printed throughout the ages than any other. But what is the Bible? What is it for? How is it used? What is its history? I hope the following will be interesting to those who are new and just starting out in Christianity, but I hope this will also prove useful to old hands. After all, we can sometimes be so close that we miss things!
