Beginning Biblical Studies
Frigge, Marielle

Winona, MN: Anselm Academic, 2009 pp. 197. $29.95


Description: In this new text, students will find a readable, comprehensive, and engaging companion for use with a study Bible. Beginning Biblical Studies does not assume familiarity with the contents or origins of the Bible, or the Bible's major events, characters, and themes. To further support beginning students, each major section begins with an overview followed later by a more detailed explanation, to gradually clarify complex ideas or developments. Keywords and concepts are listed at the beginning of each major section, then are reinforced throughout the text. Instructors may choose from a variety of Bible texts for use with this book. Several appendices in Beginning Biblical Studies provide students and teachers with additional material on particular topics such as biblical criticism, Israelite worship, literary forms in the prophetic books and the Gospels, important biblical terms and concepts, to name a few. Timelines and maps help to make ideas clear. Appropriate for all introductory Scripture courses and core introductory religion courses where theology and Scripture are covered together.

Subjects: Bible, Literature
