Departmental paper information

"This paper is an introduction to the books of the Old Testament. We will study the biblical texts in the context of the ancient Near East, look at how ancient and modern interpreters have explained the biblical texts, and focus in detail on several key examples from the books of Genesis to Kings. This paper not only provides an insight into the foundational texts of two major world religions and western culture in general, but also encourages students to develop skills in reading closely and thinking critically, skills that will serve them well not only in their university career, but in the rest of their lives."
