For Introduction to Hebrew Bible/Old Testament courses and Biblical Literature courses. 

Written for undergraduates and to satisfy and encourage curiosity, this work leads the readers on an engaging, non-sectarian tour of the Hebrew Bible. 

James E. Bowley taught many years of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament survey and never found a book that was accessible to students and still had academically challenging content, though he tried many.  As a result, over a 2-3 year period, he developed his own “library approach” and began to write it and use it with his own students with great success in the classroom.
