Review:


"Gifted with an ability to describe complex concepts in accessible language, Ehrman has crafted a textbook that offers me the working text I need to introduce the Bible within its historical contexts and with an awareness of its literary elements, even to students who bring no previous knowledge to the class."--Wayne Kannaday, Newberry College


"Ehrman's discussions are concise and do not overwhelm students with too much detail, yet the text includes much information on political and historical contexts. An enormous amount of complex material is sufficiently covered in a short space and in a thorough manner without complicating the essential discussions with tangential issues."--Paul Mirecki, University of Kansas
