Illustrated with more than 420 color photographs and maps, J. R. Porter's authoritative and engaging essays focus on biblical narratives to illuminate their meanings and context. The substantial introduction brings together the latest scholarship on how the Bible was written, compiled, and handed down from generation to generation, and discusses its far reaching influence throughout history. With deft and profound scholarship, Porter addresses many of the myths and mysteries surrounding the life of the historical Jesus, and looks at the changing interpretations of him through the years, from revolutionary to mystic and prophet. Includes a fully cross referenced, book by book summary of the Bible, a glossary of biblical terms, and a comprehensive bibliography and index.
