Why this Book?

We carry our Bibles around with such ease, that we rarely stop to think about how amazing it is to have God's Word bound in a single volume, small enough to tuck under an arm, put in a purse, or even (if you can read the tiny print!) stick it in a back pocket. What we call a book, or codex, didn't exist when the prophets were writing and weren't well-known in the days of the apostles. But Christians adopted the codex very early as a way of holding together the diverse writings they considered to be Scripture.
