This popular book maintains its exploration of the literary, historical, and contemporary worlds of the Bible.Uses a "three worlds" approach that distinguishes: the literary world (worlds) of the Bible -- the book itself, the historical world out of which the Bible emerged and through which it came to us, and the contemporary world in which we read and try to understand the Bible. In addition, the book discusses the continuing impact of the Bible -- in religion, politics, art, literature, and music.
