Thirty-three years of teaching Scripture and theology to undergraduates has given Marielle Frigge great insight into the needs of biblical study students and teachers. Unlike any other text on the market, this book does not assume familiarity with the contents or origins of the Bible or with the Bible's major events, characters, and themes. Beginning Biblical Studies, Revised Edition paints in broad strokes to provide readers sufficient context for reading and understanding the Bible. Revisions to Frigge's original text include fuller treatment of Jewish, Orthodox, and Protestant perspectives, updates for the most recent scholarship, a new appendix on archaeology and the Bible, plus more photographs, sidebars, and recommended resources, as well as revised appendices, time lines, and maps.

"Sr. Marielle Frigge's book is an excellent introduction to the study of the Bible. She presupposes nothing but conveys a great deal. No matter what the students' backgrounds, this introductory text will speak to them all. The glossaries, maps, charts, and other visuals are very helpful. Students and readers who work through her book will have a solid foundation in modern biblical studies."
--Fr. Hugh Feiss, OSB, STD, Benedictine Distance Learning
"The readability is pitch-perfect. Rarely have I found a textbook author who is so consistent in communicating with entry-level students. The precision and clarity of the author's prose should reassure any professor that his or her students are being challenged to think, yet in a language that they can comprehend. The author maintains a clear recognition of and sensitivity to interfaith and ecumenical distinctions throughout. Well done!"
--Donald Rappé, PhD, Mount Mary College
