Hauer, Christian E., Young, William A.


Designed for readers who have had limited or no exposure to the academic study of the Bible, An Introduction to the Bible: A Journey into Three Worlds explores the literary, historical, and contemporary "worlds" of the Bible. These include 1) the Biblical text itself (literary world); 2) the contexts in which the Bible was originally written and interpreted (historical world); and 3) the many ways in which the Bible continues to influence people in the twenty-first century (contemporary world). Christian Hauer and William Young's distinctive approach has led students for almost twenty years to appreciate the richness of meaning and interpretation in the history of Biblical scholarship. The text features a full chapter on Jewish life and literature between 200 B.C.E. and 100 C.E., including a discussion of books of the Deuterocanon (Apocrypha), and demonstrates the continuing role of the Bible in religion, politics, art, literature, and music.New to this edition:- Thoroughly revised and updated introductory chapters, including content on archaeology (e.g., the James ossuary) and recent scholarship (e.g., the historical Jesus discussions).- Each chapter now concludes with a new section: The Contemporary World: Case Studies, which expands and enriches students' appreciation of contemporary issues related to the Bible.- Chapter 16 is expanded to explore the Bible's meaning and significance in environmental issues, popular culture, indigenous cultures, Islam and other religions, as well as politics, religion, art, music, and literature.Hauer, Christian E. is the author of 'Introduction To The Bible a Journey into Three Worlds', published 2004 under ISBN 9780131189669 and ISBN 0131189662.
