For one semester/quarter courses in Introduction to the Bible, Introduction to the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, or The Bible as Literature.

An Introduction To The Bible approaches the Bible by considering it from three different 'worlds'-- literary, historical, and contemporary worlds. This unique approach underscores the dynamics of each of world and the methods scholars have developed to study them.  The authors are especially careful to distinguish the historical and literary worlds for students new to the discipline. Students are also encouraged to consider and discuss the contemporary significance of the Bible.
