A Study Companion to The Bible: An Introduction, Second Edition

A Study Companion to The Bible: An Introduction, Second Edition

From its very first pages, Jerry L. Sumney’s 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 Bible’s contents and the history of its writings, showing how critical methods help readers understand what they find in the Bible.

This Study Companion is a handy complement to the textbook, providing primary readings and a running glossary of terms keyed to the textbook along with exercises for further reflection. It can be purchased individually or as part of a Course Pack.
