Product Description

Addressing questions about the Bible's relevance in a postmodern, pluralistic society, Theissen offers insight into why knowing Scripture is part of being "educated." He discusses the Bible's basic elements; describes core themes, including creation, miracle, hope, faith, and judgment; and reveals biblical resources for dialogue with a secular culture, different religions, and other confessions. 176 pages, softcover from Augsburg/Fortress.

Publisher's Description

Why read the Bible? Gerd Theissen uses the wisdom gained from decades of teaching Bible instruction at a state university to address questions of the Bible's relevance in a postmodern, pluralistic society. He describes the core themes and enduring value of the biblical legacy for anyone seeking to be a well-informed, self-aware, and responsible citizen, and he commends the contributions the Bible can make to interreligious and secular conversation.
