This site grew out of one of many 'side-tracks' that interrupted my attempt to write a book chronicling the events that led to the current English language Bible. After much work I realized that in order to complete such a book I needed to research many questions that I had assumed were already resolved. Eventually, I stopped writing the book altogether, and started to focus instead on trying to find answers to my questions. This site attempts to answer just a few of them, and if you have any comments, questions, suggestions, etc. regarding it please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
