Course Description

ENG 074
The Bible as Literature
Fall and Spring

This course aims to familiarize students with much of the content as well as the structure and the literary genres of the Hebrew Bible (Christian Old Testament) and the Christian New Testament. Our literary approach to the Bible is intended to foster appreciation both for the Bible itself as literature and to build the familiarity needed for appreciation of the Bible in the Euro-American literary heritage. The syllabus emphasizes biblical reading , aided by short supplementary background readings.
