Overview


Thirty-three years of teaching Scripture and theology to undergraduates has given Marielle Frigge great insight into the needs of biblical study students and teachers. Unlike any other text on the market, this book does not assume familiarity with the contents or origins of the Bible or with the Bible's major events, characters, and themes. Beginning Biblical Studies, Revised Edition paints in broad strokes to provide readers sufficient context for reading and understanding the Bible. Revisions to Frigge's original text include fuller treatment of Jewish, Orthodox, and Protestant perspectives, updates for the most recent scholarship, a new appendix on archaeology and the Bible, plus more photographs, sidebars, and recommended resources, as well as revised appendices, time lines, and maps.
