Description
The core Bible stories—those with great cultural, historical, or literary significance—lie at the foundation of Western civilization. Without knowing these core stories, argues Tim Beal, we cannot fully participate in the popular, political, or philosophical worlds we live in. Here he presents the Bible stories that have shaped our history and provides the key information to understanding their significance and meaning.

"[The author] makes a well-stated case that a knowledge of the Bible is essential to understanding our culture. His book will serve as a handy first step toward that goal—especially for the reader who may feel intimidated by 'the boring bits'."—Bookpage

"For those who are approaching the Bible for the first time ... there is no better place to turn than Timothy Beal's Biblical Literacy. Here you will find numerous gems of the Jewish and Christian Scriptures, along with pithy, helpful, and at times even witty, introductions."—Bart D. Ehrman
