An Introduction to the Bible

Front Cover
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, Jul 8, 2009 - Religion - 538 pages

Many current Bible intro volumes focus more on theories about the biblical text than on the text itself. They lack the simplicity that has become increasingly important over the past few decades as basic biblical literacy has declined. Robert Kugler and Patrick Hartin seek to remedy that problem by turning readers back to the text at hand.

Introduction to the Bible is precisely what it claims to be, as it surveys the content of all the biblical books, section by section, focusing on the Bible's theological themes. While including some discussion of the Bible from a historical-critical standpoint, Kugler and Hartin do so to enhance, not obscure, understanding.

Perfect for undergraduates, church study groups, and interested laypeople, Kugler and Hartin's Introduction to the Bible ably delivers on its title.
