    The Bible is among the world's most influential and important books - and the most controversial. But how did it become the book we know it to be? This title charts its evolution from oral tales via Hebrew texts, Greek, and Latin translations, to its many different forms, offering an insight into the history. This is a list of literary works (including novels, plays, series, collections of poems or short stories, and essays and other forms of literary non-fiction) sorted by the number of languages they have been translated into. This is a dynamic list and may never be able to satisfy particular standards for completeness. You can help by expanding.

The most overlooked part of the Bible, apologetically speaking, is the table of contents. It does more than just tell us the pages on which the constituent books begin.

It tells us that the Bible is a collection of books, and that implies a collector. The identity of the collector is what chiefly distinguishes the Protestant from the Catholic.
