From the Publisher:

The text's organization follows the order of the canonical Hebrew Bible, Christian Gospels, Pauline Letters, General Epistles and a Vision of End Time, and the subsequent history of the Judeo-Christian Bible.
Learning aids include lists of key themes at the beginning of each chapter, a complete glossary, review questions, bibliography, lists of key terms, and many visual aids, including attractively revised maps.
An extensive section entitled 'Ways of Studying the Bible' illustrates the methods and goals of modern biblical scholarship.
The introductory survey of ancient history extends from early Mesopotamia to the Greek and Roman periods.
