Can you recommend a good resource that addresses where we got the Bible?

I have a 20-year-old brother who, although raised Catholic, is confused about his thoughts on theology. Sometimes we get into discussions about the validity of the Bible. Can you recommend a resource or two that addresses this, i.e. the history behind the Bible, how we discovered and validated the documents themselves, how we know or speculate who the authors are, etc?

Here are some recommendations:


*Where We Got the Bible *
by Henry Graham


Canon of the Old Testament

Canon of the New Testament

Bible, III (Canon)
By Father William Most

Articles on the Bible organized by subject
