REL 113 (IT, TH) Scripting God: A Critical Introduction to the Bible (1)

The Bible is a cultural force like no other. As a book, it outsells all others combined. As a source of authority, only the Constitution competes with it for influence. But what is the Bible, really? Where does it come from? What is actually in it? What do scholars say about its perplexing content? This is a course about the Bible for students who wish to know more about it. No prior knowledge is required, only a readiness to think critically about a sacred text.
