Item description for An Introduction to the Bible by Robert Kugler & Patrick Hartin...

Time and time again volumes of introduction to the Bible focus more on clarifying current theories about the biblical text than on understanding the text itself. Simplicity is sorely lacking in the wider "introductory literature," yet it has become increasingly important as basic biblical literacy among undergraduates has declined over the past decades. Robert Kugler and Patrick Hartin seek to remedy this problem by turning our gaze back to the text itself. An Introduction to the Bible is just what it claims to be, as it includes surveys of the content of every biblical book, section by section. While it does offer accessible introductions to Bible backgrounds, historical-critical methods, and critical issues associated with the biblical book, these are included to enhance, not obscure, understanding. Perfect for undergraduates, church study groups, and interested laypeople, An Introduction to the Bible ably delivers on its title and can be a foundational work for anyone seeking to understand God's Word more fully.

Publishers Description
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 crucial 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. Their Introduction to the Bible surveys the content of all the biblical books, section by section, focusing on the Bibles theological themes.
