PHIL 240 - Survey of the Bible

3 CR
The Bible is the most widely distributed and most widely read book in the world. We will analyze the Hebrew Bible and the New Testaments in the areas of philosophy, theology, ethics, and spirituality, including its varying impact on ancient to contemporary thought. We will consider society in biblical times, culture, history, and archeology in discussing and interpreting the writings. We will make connections to world history as we critically examine how the Bible came to be and compare different methods of interpretation.
