JOHN RICHES is Professor of Divinity and Biblical Criticism at the University of Glasgow.
The Bibleby John Riches
John Riches's investigation of what is perhaps the world's most influential text gives a clear, comprehensible overview, along with in-depth research on the Bible's origins, writing, and development. Riches looks at Biblical criticism, the book's wide-ranging cultural impact, why it has been the product of multiple interpretations and uses, and how it has been exploited for political gain.
