Are you sure you want to remove The Bible as literature from your list? The Bible as literature.

To say that the Bible is "literature" is to acknowledge that it was written by real human beings who lived in historical times and who had meanings they sought to convey to real readers. In this exciting new work, Gabel and Wheeler approach the Bible from a literary/historical perspective, offering insights into the literary forms and strategies of Biblical writing, its historical and physical settings, the process of canon formation, the sources of the Pentateuch, and the nature of biblical genres like propohecy, apocalypse, and gospel. The text also considers practical problems in the translation process, and compares a number of English versions. The rigorously neutral scholarship displayed in The Bible as Literature makes the literary art of the Bible accessible to people of all faiths.
Reviews:
  • Agantrius
This is a very insightful book. If you want to step back and consider what one of the most signifigant books in American culture is comprised of; this book is for you. It also looks at other major religous texts. If you want to have a world view on religion this can help. In American culture the bible is a sacred infalible complete relic, but in reality it is a varying asortment of compiled texts from several cultures that practiced different religons. This is by far easier to see when you dont have a religious bias. People with a religious bias will have a much easier time seeing the flaws in religous text they dont afiliate with.
  • Jusari
The book is amazingly comprehensive. However for an Introductory class -- especially for comparing
the Bible and the Qur'an as Literature, it may be too detailed and includes a number of topics (chapters)
that are not relevant to the Qur'an comparison. If the Course were just an Introduction to "The Bible As Literature"
I believe this would be the book I would select.
  • Gugrel
It was as I remembered it from my college class. Studied the book of Job in my church class and took another view of it from the Literature standpoint.

It is difficult to separate the literary and religious aspects of the Bible, but the authors' focus is on the book "as literature" and in the space of 357 pages (in my copy of the 4th edition - 432 according to Amazon.com), they cover literary forms and strategies, historical and geographic settings, the major components of the Old and New Testaments and the Apocrypha and Pseudoepigrapha, and issues concerning the text and its translation. A valuable final chapter considers the religious use and interpretation of the Bible. Although the book is concise, it manages in its 18 chapters and 3 appendices to be comprehensive and is consistently readable. I find the sensible, scientific approach credible and while it frequently causes me to reflect on my religious beliefs, they are not seriously undermined by this liberal approach. I do not know of a better introduction to the Bible.

I think that this book is wonderful! I am a student of Dr. Anthony York's and we have utilized this book in our classes. The Bible As Literature discusses the Bible in a manner that helps the reader actually read what is/was written without all the religious jargon. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is curious about "The Bible" or to anyone who thinks they "really" know what the Bible states.
This book is great. I have Dr. Anthony York, one of the authors of this book,in class, and his book is wonderful. It really helps to see the various opinions of the bible. It is also great for people who want to study the bible as literature and not from a religious stand point.
