Why the Bible?
Ideas central to the Bible—love, faith, justice, hope, and unity—shape monumental texts like the U.S. Constitution. Understanding the Bible’s influence on the United State’s founding documents is key to understanding those writings.
Numerous writers, visual artists, and musicians have incorporated Bible references into their works. Understanding these allusions helps students understand some of the most consequential works of literature, art and music and their importance to culture and society.
Many of the values, stories, and images of the Bible have seeped into everyday language. Students will encounter them in movies, music, and conversation, and our courses help students understand these sayings when they hear them. In our public debates through US history, people have used Biblical language and concepts as a sort of “moral grammar,” making understanding the Bible’s ideas crucial to understanding the history of public debate in the United States.
