The Bible (also referred to as the Scriptures) is the inerrant and infallible Word of God, which reveals His salvation plan to mankind through His Son Jesus Christ. The standard Protestant version consists of 66 books, 39 of which comprise the Old Testament and 27 of which comprise the New Testament. It was written over a period of 2,000 years by various authors through the "inspiration of God" (literally "God-breathed"), starting with the Torah, then later becoming "the Law and Prophets" at the time of Jesus' first coming, then later including the four Gospel accounts, the Acts of the Apostles, the Epistles that were written by at least five or six apostles in the First Century A.D., and the book of Revelation. It was originally written in Hebrew and Greek, and then later was translated into Latin, then English, and then into various other languages. It has been a common source of wisdom, guidance, and comfort for a Christian in his or her walk with the Lord.
The whole of the Left Behind series is based on prophesied events from the Bible, primarily from the book of Revelation but also including various Old Testament prophecies regarding Israel that have yet to be fulfilled.
