ENGAGING THE CHRISTIAN SCRIPTURES An Introduction to the Bible, 2nd ed. Andrew E. Arterbury, W. H. Bellinger Jr., and Derek S. Dodson This readable and faith-friendly introduction to the Bible aids students as they engage in their first informed reading of the biblical text in an academic setting. The authors, who have signif- icant undergraduate teaching experience, approach the Christian Scriptures from historical, literary, and theological perspectives. Engaging the Christian Scriptures is designed for a one-semester course and is meant to be read alongside the biblical text, en- abling students to become educated readers of the Bible. In the process, it introduces critical perspectives and approaches with- out undermining the theological claims found in the Christian Scriptures. The book includes text boxes, illustrations, maps, and suggestions for further reading. The second edition incorporates professor and student feedback, adds a glossary, and has been revised throughout. ANDREW E. ARTERBURY (PhD, Baylor University) is professor of Christian Scriptures at Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University. W. H. BELLINGER JR. (PhD, University of Cambridge) is the W. Marshall and Lulie Craig Chairholder in Bible, professor of religion, and chair of the Depart- ment of Religion at Baylor University. DEREK S. DODSON (PhD, Baylor University) is senior lecturer in religion at Baylor University. “This readable and accessible introduction to the Bible is a breath of fresh air for faculty and students tackling the seemingly insurmountable task of learning about the entire Christian Bible in a single semester.
