“The Bible for English Majors”
Mary Anne Nunn

In an increasingly secular world, more and more students begin their university studies having never developed sufficient familiarity with the Bible to recognize even the broad outlines of the stories it contains. This text offers: “Starting points”—histories of both the biblical texts and ancient Israel, information on formats for dates and referencing, guide to the Names of God—synopses of every book in the Old and New Testaments, and an extensive “Glossary”—alphabetical entries offer definitions, pronunciations, biblical references, and references to longer treatments within the text itself.
