The purpose of this book is to introduce you to the amazing literature of the Bible. —From the Introduction
The Bible can be intimidating. This is as true for seasoned biblical scholars as it is for first-time readers. Schehr's insightful approach recognizes that the Bible is not one monolithic text, but a complete library—seventy-three volumes of poetry, stories, history, imagination and revelation. He offers a quick introduction to each of these books that highlights the main characters, the great themes, the central questions and the spiritual lessons.
With questions for reflection, helpful sidebars and a timeline of biblical events, this volume is an indispensable roadmap (with a few handy shortcuts) for those setting upon the journey through our most important book.
