On this episode of Up Close, who wrote the Bible and how are we meant to experience it? Several scholars offer their take.
First, Bible scholar and religious Jew Michael Carasik, who is editing a new series of commentators Bibles for the Jewish Publication Society, discusses his new book The Bible’s Many Voices.
Next, Brown University professor Michael Satlow, author of How the Bible Became Holy, examines how the Bible came together and what happened as it did.
Finally, Jesuit priest James Martin, an editor at the Jesuit magazine America, shares what he learned on a two-week trip to Israel to retrace the life of Jesus the man in his new book, Jesus: A Pilgrimage.
