Christians talk frequently about the Bible, yet they do not always have an informed and wide-ranging understanding of varied Christian views about its nature. Don Thorsen and Keith Reeves combine their biblical and theological knowledge to create such a unique introduction to the Bible.This book not only provides an introduction to the interpretation of the Bible but also to the history and theological understanding behind it, equipping students to think critically about their own tradition's approach to Scripture. It is perfect as a supplemental textbook in both introductory biblical studies and theology courses, but it will also be of interest to adult education classes.

Don Thorsen is professor of theology in the Haggard School of Theology at Azusa Pacific University. He holds degrees from Stanford University, Asbury Theological Seminary, Princeton Theological Seminary, and Drew University. His previous books include The Wesleyan Quadrilateral: Tradition, Reason and Experience as a Model of Evangelical Theology; Theological Resources for Ministry: A Bibliography of Works in Theological Studies; and Inclusive Language Handbook: A Practical Guide to Using Inclusive Language.
