Description

The Bible has had a profound influence on the diverse cultures of Europe and the British Isles, the Americas, Australia and Africa, and has even left an imprint on Asia. It is a book that has inspired the whole range of human emotion and experience, including some of the finest art and literature. And even in this current age, which often considers itself secular and post-Christian, the Bible remains the biggest seller of all books. The Bible: A History does not attempt to help readers grasp the contents of the Bible. Rather, it helps them to understand the vital role the Bible has played in history over the past 2000 years. Areas covered include: How the Bible Came to Be; The Bible in a Rapidly Growing Church; The Book of the Reformation; and The Bible in the Modern World.show more
