Overview

Introduction to the Bible: Overview, Historical Context, and Cultural Perspectives by William Anderson

The Bible is ever ancient and ever new--a compilation of many books from unique periods of antiquity that makes it "a library within a library." As the most revered of Christian texts, the Bible is the best known and most sold, but perhaps the least understood book in the world. Father William A. Anderson lays groundwork for the reader to understand the historical and cultural contexts, "hear" the oral traditions, and "meet" the writers of each book of the Bible.
