The Bible: The Basics is a compelling introduction to the Bible as both a sacred text, central to the faith of millions, and a classic work of Western literature, containing a tapestry of genres, voices, perspectives and images. This masterly guide skilfully addresses both aspects of the Bible’s character by exploring:

  • the rich variety of literary forms, from poetry to prophecy and epistles to apocalypses
  • the historical, geographic and social context of the Bible
  • contemporary attitudes to the Bible held by believers and non-believers
  • the status of biblical interpretation today

Including maps, a chronology and detailed suggestions for further reading, this is an ideal starting point for people of any faith or none who are studying the Bible in any setting or simply want to know more about the best-selling book of all time.
