About this product
- DescriptionDivided into two major sections, this undergraduate text explores first the various uses of texts in the Bible and in contemporary literature (including a number of multicultural choices). In the second half, the authors demonstrate the interplay of important themes in both, including spiritual quests, divine love, war, and family. Each chapter includes discussion questions, suggested readings, and sidebars to create an interplay between the text and interesting ancillary material. A natural textbook for popular collegiate interdisciplinary coursed in religion and literature, this book will also be useful for students/teachers of courses in Catholic Studies, Introduction to Christianity, and more.
