    For this week’s reading, I chose the article “The Corrections of Codex Sinaiticus and the Textual Transmission of Revelation: Josef Schmid Revisited” by Peter Malik .

This book is more than just a simple discussion of how God inspired the authors to write down his words. It's a deeper discussion of the many different processes involved through history…
