What does the Bible say?

In our society today, fewer and fewer people have any understanding of what the Bible is, where it came from and what it tells us.

This course is an introduction to the Bible as a whole, complete unit. It covers each and every book of the Bible over the course of the program year, giving a big-picture view. For each book, students learn about the author, the background, the major theme or themes, and a brief look at the content of the book. What is the geography of the cities and towns mentioned? What unique cultural conditions influenced the people that enter the account? Why did God inspire the author to emphasize the points that he did?
