Designed for College Students Taking Their First Course in Biblical Studies


In this new text, students will find a readable, comprehensive, and engaging companion for use with a study Bible. Beginning Biblical Studies does not assume familiarity with the contents or origins of the Bible, or the Bible's major events, characters, and themes.

To further support beginning students, each major section begins with an overview, followed later by a more detailed explanation, to gradually clarify complex ideas or developments. Keywords and concepts are listed at the beginning of each major section, then are reinforced throughout the text. Instructors may choose from a variety of Bible texts for use with this book. Several appendices in Beginning Biblical Studies provide students and teachers with additional material on particular topics such as biblical criticism, Israelite worship, literary forms in the prophetic books and the Gospels, important biblical terms and concepts, to name a few. Timelines and maps help to make ideas clear.

Midwest Book Review: Small Press Bookwatch, February, 2010

Reading the Bible is easy, but understanding it can prove difficult. Beginning Biblical Studies is a guide for those who want to take their Bible study further and do not know where to begin. Marielle Frigge gives readers a solid introductory to advancing one's Bible study and how to better understand the periods of biblical times. Beginning Biblical Studies is a top pick for those who want more in their understanding of Scripture than the Bible can bring.
