Revelations: Personal Responses To The Books Of The Bible

RevpersbibleA while back I came across the Canongate series of Pocket Canons (see Greenflame · Nick Cave on the Gospel of Mark). I like the series, and now I’ve found that all the introductory pieces written for the different biblical books in that series have been collected into a single volume – “Revelations: Personal Responses To The Books Of The Bible” introduced by Richard Holloway.

I’ve borrowed the book from the university library in order to look at Bono’s piece on the Psalams for a course I’m preparing, but I’ve found that I’m dipping into it every now and then to read another person’s reflection on a biblical book. Some really interesting responses to, not only the content of the biblical material, but also the context it has been encountered in.
