Hi 🙂
Was just wondering if you guys knew of any books that solidly speak of the history of: the Bible, the Chruch, and present-day biblically-sound doctrines. Just want to see the general consensus so I know which ones to choose.
Grace to you all 😀

I'll share the ones I mentioned in my email to you, then you can see what others post as well --

Wayne Grudem's "Systematic Theology" is a well-written, thorough, and easy-to-understand book which covers all the above topics except for Church History.

R. Laird Harris' "Inspiration and Canonicity of the Scriptures" is good on how we ended up with the books in our Bible.

F. F. Bruce's "The Books and the Parchments: The Languages, Canon, Manuscripts, Versions, History, and 'Lost Books' of the Bible."

For church history I've used Kenneth Scott Latourette and Phillip Schaff (these go back to my seminary days in the 1980's, so there might be more recent books that are more helpful).
