Description

Teaching Tool!

This collection of essays evaluates how the Bible continues to influence American art, literature, music, politics, education, and social movements. In this one-volume update of the Society of Biblical Literature’s Bible in American Culture series of the 1980s, contributors illustrate how biblical themes infuse US culture and are in turn transformed by it.
