Publisher's Description

This book encourages users to read the Bible and primary sources closely and carefully, and offers background sketches about topics not explained in the Bible. It points to specific versus and chapters, asking carefully constructed questions that prompt readers to think creatively and figure out their own answers. The book also shares with learners the issues that biblical scholars study, and more importantly, how biblical scholars create arguments about those issues. An emphasis on biblical literacy provides an understanding of major themes in the Bible, an introduction to major biblical characters, and knowledge of Biblical scholarship. The book also contains a variety of scholarly techniques for analyzing biblical materials. For church-based adult Bible-study classes, and for anyone who want to do more than study the Bible.

Editorial Reviews

"I really like the idea of asking questions as a way of actively engaging students in the learning process. I also like the idea of getting the student to read the primary sources rather than relying on a scholar's opinions." — Elaine McDuff, Truman State University

"As far as I know, this work is unique. It fills an important lacuna in the field of Biblical introductions. There has been a need for a work like this for a long time. The author is well versed in ...biblical material and refers students to the key passages with which they must be familiar for understanding the literature of ancient Israel." — David Crump, Calvin College

"Porter's text has the great advantage of pushing the Biblical student into inductive self-discovery of the central issues in contemporary Biblical scholarship." — Randal Cummings, California State University, Northridge
