"O frabjous day! Callouh, Callay! I’m chortling in my joy. Today my textbook on the entire Bible – Genesis to Revelation – gets published: The Bible: A Historical and Literary Introduction. This was a long time in the making, and it is a huge relief to see it finally out. I think Oxford did an amazing job on it – as they usually do. I love the cover, the layout, the whole production. You can buy it on Amazon or most anywhere else. It is priced a little higher than most of my books this size, but that’s because it’s a textbook, and that’s just what happens with textbooks. Even so, it is priced lower than the competition. And in my humble and completely unbiased opinion, you get a lot more bang for your buck."
I can only assume that this textbook will be worth everyone's while. Bart is a fantastic writer and erudite historian and his NT textbooks are used in universities and seminaries around the world. I am assigning his "brief" NT introduction to my own NT class next semester. You can preorder the book on Amazon here.
