Who Wrote the Bible?

Published on 25th February 2016 by

A feature length 2004 documentary which was screened on UK Channel 4 in which Christian theologian Dr. Robert Beckford takes the viewer on a journey of historical discovery to explain the origins of the bible and ultimately assert that much of the bible is a work of fiction and much of the rest a work of spin merchants.

The documentary proved controversial in the UK with many Christian organisations complaining that the film would be broadcast near to Christmas. Beckford himself however describes himself as a committed Pentecostal Christian and stated that his journey made him question some of his most basic religious beliefs. He followed up with another documentary in 2007, The Hidden Story of Jesus, in which he investigates amazing parallels between the Christ story and stories from other faiths.
