From the language of Shakespeare to political campaigns in the US, the Bible’s influence is all around us. And yet, upon reading it, we are met not by one text but by many: a complex mix of history, parable, law, teaching, and prophecy. In this authoritative introduction, respected Biblical scholar Paula Gooder ably guides the reader in how to approach this multifaceted text, and explores its enduring influence on Western culture, from Renaissance art to the controversial film The Last Temptation of Christ. Covering its history, translation, interpretation, and selection of the cannon, Gooder provides a comprehensive and illuminating framework for understanding the Bible. With informative textboxes focussing on key details and an infectious enthusiasm for the topic, this wide-ranging primer will be of invaluable benefit to Christians and those of no faith alike.

Finding an introduction to the Bible without any denominational strings attached is difficult, if not impossible. Browse the shelves at any bookstore and you'll find dozens of books calling themselves introductions to the Bible, but once you get to the text instead of scholarly, unbiased information you'll find what the author or his denomination thinks the Bible says. You will also find that very few of these books actually make the reader want to pick up a Bible and read it. The Bible is a complex work simply too good to be left to wide-eyed televangelists and cranky old scholars alone - this book provides the information about the Bible many readers crave without making them feel like they have stumbled into somebody else's religious service. Absolute Beginner's Guide to the Bible gives readers, whether new to the Bible or looking for a refresher course, a framework to their Biblical studies.

Let's face it. Just the word exegesis puts some of us on edge. We are excited about learning to interpret the Bible, but the thought of exegetical method evokes a chill. Some textbooks on exegesis do nothing to overcome these apprehensions. The language is dense. The concepts are hard. And the expectations are way too high. However, the skills that we need to learn are ones that a minister of the gospel will use every week. Exegesis provides the process for listening, for hearing the biblical text as if you were an ordinary intelligent person listening to a letter from Paul or a Gospel of Mark in first-century Corinth or Ephesus or Antioch. This book by Richard Erickson will help you learn this skill. Thoroughly accessible to students, it clearly introduces the essential methods of interpreting the New Testament, giving students a solid grasp of basic skills while encouraging practice and holding out manageable goals and expectations. Numerous helps and illustrations clarify, summarize and illuminate the principles. And a wealth of exercises tied to each chapter are available on the web. This is a book distinguished not so much by what it covers as by how: it removes the "fear factor" of exegesis. There are many guides to New Testament exegesis, but this one is the most accessible--and fun!
