Product Description

Ninety percent of Americans own a copy of the Bible, and while it's the most widely read book, it's also the least understood. Regardless of your religion, understanding the Bible brings much of Western art, literature, and public discourse into greater focus-from Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper" painting to the Wachowski brothers' The Matrix movies. People have historically turned to religion to deal with tragedy and change, and with the right insight, the Bible can be an accessible, helpful guide to life's big questions.

Follow the history of the Bible from its beginning thousands of years ago as tattered scrolls to its status as the bestseller of all time and find answers to such questions as: Where did the Bible come from? Who wrote the Bible? How is the Bible put together? The Bible For Dummies covers these topics and more:

  • Ten people in the Bible you should know
  • The Hebrew Bible
  • The Apocrypha's hidden treasures
  • What's new about the New Testament
  • Israel's wisdom, literature, and love poetry
  • The Bible's enduring influence
  • The prophets: more than fortunetellers

Whether you're interested in broadening your spiritual horizons, uncovering the symbolism of Western culture, or gaining a deeper understanding of the book you grew up reading, The Bible For Dummies has all the information you need to navigate this ancient and fascinating book.
