OK, it's not the snappiest heading I've come up with, but it is the title of a very good new book, published by SCM (Student Christian Movement). SCM are probably best known for their publishing arm, and for being the student movement that isn't evangelical. Just lately, they have tended to focus on justice campaigns.
However, this book is a welcome piece of writing. It gives an excellent overview of issues relating to the Bible - what's in it, why, and different ways of reading. COmes with a CDROM of useful stuff and handouts. Read all about it and download samplers here
If you don't want to be challenged, stretched, enlightened and you really want to stay comfortably in the box occupied by your present knowledge, then don't buy this. Otherwise, I recommend it!
PS It's £10
