About this title:
Synopsis:
Exploring the Bible provides students with a clear, concise, and accessible introduction to the Bible, both Old and New Testaments. The book combines current scholarship with a fresh, readable analysis of the biblical literature, placing each document in its socio-historical context. Student-friendly, it facilitates learning with helpful pedagogical features, ranging from "Key Topics/Themes" summarizing crucial information at the head of each chapter to an extensive glossary of essential terms at the end of the book. At the close of each chapter, "Questions for Discussion and Review" contribute to stimulating class discussions. "Recommended Readings" emphasize the most current--and easily accessible--references for further study.
