John Romer walks us through a historical account of how the bible has come into the English language. This is a very good documentary and one every person should watch. Be patient, replay as needed, it's a series of historical accounts which span thousands of years; so, to have it on 3 DVD's is actually very short. Don't watch it in bed or partially asleep otherwise you will miss fantastic video footage and a historical record of the Jewish/Christian faith.
