Description: From its very first pages, Jerry L. Sumneyís The Bible: An Introduction offers clear answers to the most basic questions that first-time students and curious inquirers bring to the Bible. Without presuming either prior knowledge of the Bible or a particular attitude toward it, Jerry L. Sumney uses straightforward language to lead the reader on an exploration of the Bibleís contents and the history of its writings, showing how critical methods help readers understand what they find in the Bible.
