Item description for The Biblical World (Routledge Worlds) by John Barton...

The Biblical World is a guide to the contents, historical settings and social context of the Bible. It presents years of specialist study in accessible form, and is useful reading for anyone who reads the Bible and would like to know more about how and why it came to be. Volume one begins with an overview of the full range of Biblical material (Old Testament, Apocrypha and New Testament), before going onto more detailed discussions of the major genres of Biblical literature - from myth and prophecy to poetry and proverbs. The contributors also consider the ways in the texts have been transmitted, the significance of parallel and related versions, and past interpretations of the Bible. Explorations of the historical background are complemented by the findings of archaeology, and discussion of matters such as language, law, administration, social life and the arts offer a fuller understanding of the social and cultural settings of ancient Israel and the early Christian churches. Major figures of the Bible - including Abraham, Jesus and Paul - are studied in detail, as are the main religious concepts it contains, such as salvation and purity.
