Readers who effectively discern God’s Word speaking in Scripture to today’s world distinguish between the cultural circumstances of origin of the biblical writings and their abiding message. This new book by distinguished biblical scholar Edgar McKnight begins by dealing with the reality, necessity, and value of the completely human nature of the Bible. After discussions of the specific geographical and historical setting of the Bible and the contribution of archaeology, consideration is given to the major themes and translations of the Bible, the formation of the canon, and the language and literary means of expounding the message. The final chapter deals with the credulous, critical, and creative readings of the Bible that are possible and even necessary in light of its character as Word of God in historical and literary form.
