Scribes & Scripture

A Conference on the History and

Development of the Bible

Discover the amazing history of history’s most amazing book.

How did a set of books written in multiple languages by dozens of authors across thousands of years become the Bible we know and trust today? How were the books chosen? How well was the text hand copied and how is it translated into English?

Explore the answers to these questions and more with Scribes & Scripture, a series of talks on the history of the Bible for churches, college ministries, and other groups from Dr. John Meade and Dr. Peter Gurry.

The Conference will be held at First Baptist Church Loeb August 6 from 6-9pm and August 7th from 9-12. The cost of the conference is $10 per person for all non-members of FBC Loeb, and free to all members and Local Pastors.
