Noting a rise in traditional religious observances in America, a guide to the Hebrew Bible's narratives and laws offers insight into their most important ideas and teachings and provides an annotated listing of all 613 laws of the Torah. Reissue.

In the tradition of Stephen Prothero’s Religious Literacy and Ken Davis’s Don’t Know Much About the Bible, Biblical Literacy is a one-stop course on the Bible that offers readers—whether religious or not—every Bible story and passage they need to know. Professor Tim Beal has selected the Bible stories that have shaped history and our world and provides the key information we need to understand their significance and meaning. Whether atheist or believer, readers will benefit from this entry-level course into the heart of the most influential book ever written.

& Taylor

All the Bible's timeless stories of love, greed, and the human condition are arranged in one volume, providing a complete education in the books of the Hebrew Bible and conveying their psychological and emotional truths as well
