Written by one of the world's great Bible scholars, this classic Bible study resource offers a complete introduction to the history, literature, and wisdom of the Bible.

Publishers Description
William Barclay testifies to the Bible's unique value as an inspired book and gives clear advice on the best way to read it. He tells how the biblical writings came into being and finally gained acceptance as Scripture. And he explains the significance and the status of the Apocrypha. Most important of all, William Barclay presents the Bible as a book to be read and enjoyed today - a light in the darkness of a world that has lost its way.
Barclay's original text has been edited and revised by Professor John W. Rogerson, who has also written a new introduction. Rogerson is the head of the Department of Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield and an authority on the Old Testament. This is a required text for "Lay Speakers Lead Bible Study: Advanced Course." (Abingdon Press, 1997)

Reviews - What do customers think about Introducing the Bible 25th Anniversary Edition?

Must-Read to Understand Today's Christian Scholarship  Aug 12, 2002
This little book is mandatory reading because Barclay is widely cited and hailed as "one of the world's great biblical scholars". His book concisely reflects the sad shape of Christianity and its scholarship today. Barclay states that "For a variety of reasons, it is not possible to hold... that the Bible is literally and, as it were physically, the word of God". He neatly skewers the majority of Christians who hold to weak notions of the inspiration of the Bible. No mid-Acts dispensationalist is surprised that "early sermons do not connect the death of Jesus with the forgiveness of sins", but Barclay obtusely notes his own surprise and marches onward. Barclay's little book is easy-to-read, clearly states his philosophy, and spares the reader his more ponderous other books.
I like the good ways that this book points out specifics!  Sep 3, 1999
THis book is very good at poiting out the most important parts of being a christian that are in the bible. I like this book, even though I am reading it for my bible class here at college. Great book!
