Product Description

In Introducing the Bible William Barclay testifies to the Bible's unique value as an inspired book and gives clear advice on the best way to read it. He tells how the biblical writings came into being and finally gained acceptance as Scripture. And he explains the signifigance and the status of the Apocrypha. Most important of all, William Barclay presents the Bible as a book to be read and enjoyed today - a light in the darkness of a world that has lost its way. William Barclay's original text has been edited and revised by Professon John W. Rogerson, who has also written a new introduction. Mr. Rogerson is head of the Department of Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield, and is an authority on the Old Testament and author of a number of books.
