The average person today has a skeptical view of how the Bible was put together. We have people like Dan Brown and his best-selling book; The Davinci Code to thank for that. In it he portrays the Bible as a document put together by some sinister religio-political figures who are bent on world domination through religion. However, Dan himself asserts that his book is purely fictional. So how did we end up with the volume we know today as the Old Testament or as I prefer to refer to it the Hebrew Bible?
