Product Overview

?Kristin Swenson offers a confident, well-paced, well-informed, and accessible guide to Bible basics and biblical literacy.? ? Walter Brueggemann, author of An Unsettling God: The Heart of the Hebrew Bible

Bible Babel, from author and religious studies professor Kristin Swenson, is a lively, humorous, and very readable introduction to the Bible?what?s in it, where it comes from, and how it is used in our culture today. If you?ve ever wondered about the origin of the Christian fish symbol; the history of the Good Book; how the Bible weighs in on contemporary political issues; or even the biblical source of pop-culture references in WALL-E or Battlestar Galatica, then this is the book for you. Readers of A. J. Jacobs?s Year of Living Biblically and David Plotz?s Good Book will enjoy Bible Babel, a perfect primer for anyone interested in the Bible?secular and believing alike.
