Explore the literary journey of the Bible
In our culture, the Bible is monolithic. It has been unchanged and unchallenged since the earliest days of the Christian church. The idea of the Bible as "Holy Scripture" has prevailed in Western society for some time. And while it provides a firm foundation for centuries of Christian teaching, it denies the depth, variety, and richness of this fascinating text.
In A History of the Bible, John Barton argues that the Bible is a product of a long and intriguing process. Barton shows how the Bible is indeed an important source of religious insight for Jews and Christians alike, yet argues that it must be listened to in its historical context—from its beginnings in myth and folklore to its many interpretations throughout the centuries.
