This is a single volume overview of the entire Bible, an introductory primer which helpfully and easily presents the reader with the “big picture”, a summary of the historical background, literary genre, main ideas and core theological message for each book. Hugh Hill highlights the threads which bind the whole together and shows how every part of the Bible is instructive for us today. The striking thing about this material is how fresh, pertinent and applied it is. A fine example of clear writing, it concentrates on what really matters, allowing us to grasp the whole. Originally taught to a congregation Sunday by Sunday, the text constantly brings the reader back to his or her own life. Thoroughly researched and expertly expounded, it will serve to whet the appetite for more in-depth study.

Did the Bible only take its definitive form after Alexander conquered the Near East, after the Hellenisation of the Samaritans and Jews, and after the founding of the great library of Alexandria? The Bible and Hellenism takes up one of the most pressing and controversial questions of Bible Studies today: the influence of classical literature on the writing and formation of the Bible. Bringing together a wide range of international scholars, The Bible and Hellenism explores the striking parallels between biblical and earlier Greek literature and examines the methodological issues raised by such comparative study. The book argues that the oral traditions of historical memory are not the key factor in the creation of biblical narrative. It demonstrates that Greek texts – from such authors as Homer, Hesiod, Herodotus and Plato – must be considered amongst the most important sources for the Bible.
