About this product
- DescriptionThe Bible has profoundly influenced the western world. Many of its characters and stories are well kwn and yet, oddly eugh, wide swaths of the Bible are unkwn and misunderstood. The laws and teaching contained within it have shaped contemporary thinking and jurisprudence in ways many do t realise. Equally important, two of the world's largest religions-Judaism and Christianity-consider the Hebrew Bible to be sacred and to contain enduring truths about beginnings and creation, life and death, the world, and what it means to be human. This introduction will introduce beginners to the Bible with simplicity and precision, in an engaging manner. It will provide a quick overview of the issues related to reading and studying the Bible as an academic discipline while simultaneously illustrating the importance of the Bible for religion, western jurisprudence, ethics, and contemporary conceptions of the family, morality, and even politics.
