Promotional Information

This text encourages students to read the Bible and primary sources closely and carefully, and offers background sketches about topics not explained in the Bible. It points to specific versus and chapters, asking carefully constructed questions that prompt students to think creatively and figure out their own answers.


"I really like the idea of asking questions as a way of actively engaging students in the learning process. I also like the idea of getting the student to read the primary sources rather than relying on a scholar's opinions." -- Elaine McDuff, Truman State University "As far as I know, this work is unique. It fills an important lacuna in the field of Biblical introductions. There has been a need for a work like this for a long time. The author is well versed in ...biblical material and refers students to the key passages with which they must be familiar for understanding the literature of ancient Israel." -- David Crump, Calvin College "Porter's text has the great advantage of pushing the Biblical student into inductive self-discovery of the central issues in contemporary Biblical scholarship." -- Randal Cummings, California State University, Northridge
