The writing style is especially accessible to the average undergraduate, it seems to me. The exercises at the end of each chapter are also especially helpful, and I very much liked the case study format the featured three hypothetical students.
-Professor Gerald Vigna, Alvernia University
The division of the material into the "three worlds" is wonderful! The conclusion is very helpful in orienting students to the use of and importance of the Bible in culture.
-Instructor Cheryl Rhodes, Coastal Carolina University and University of South Carolina
The "three worlds" approach makes it very easy to introduce students to literary and historical approaches to the text, and gives them (and me) a clear indication of when we're switching gears and interpreting the text through different lenses.
-Professor Shannon Grimes, Meredith College
I appreciate that the text is not overly doctrinaire. This is a departmental choice, yet each member of the department can use it and bring out her/his own personality while using the text.
-Professor J Babban, Chowan University
One thing I really like about it is it is up date on recent biblical scholarship.
-Professor David Torbett, Marietta College--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If you're looking for a way to save a buck, buy this version and then just compare with a buddy for the right page numbers and questions.
The book is very overpriced and not worth it especially if you already understand the bible, but it is required for Christian Scriptures.
The contents of this book helped me understand the bible better because it gave the historical and literary world. It also talked about the contemporary world. Sometimes the book doesn't go into great detail over the contemporary world as much as they would go over historical or literary.
