This compact introduction to the Bible shows you how to read the biblical text as Christian Scripture, focusing on the meaning of the Bible for the church. Experienced teachers with expertise in different parts of the Bible focus on the message of Scripture as a whole, giving you the tools you need to read the biblical text for yourself. Beginning with the basics of Christian beliefs about Scripture and a bird’s-eye survey of the biblical story, scholars such as Robert W. Wall and David R. Nienhuis introduce the story, arrangement, style, and key ideas of major divisions in the Old and New Testaments, helping readers see how the books of the Bible form a coherent whole.
