In About the Bible, Fretheim offers straightforward answers to reoccuring questions about how the Bible was written, organized, and interpreted-and why people have such different opinions about what the Bible has to say. Fretheim goes beyond and discusses the role of prophets in the Bible, connections between the Old and New Testaments, the way the Bible uses metaphors and poetry, and faith-driven questions about the suffering and violence that appear in biblical texts.
