Keith Ward introduces this volume on the world's greatest ever
bestseller by suggesting that the Bible is neither a book dictated
by God, as some believe, nor just a set of out-dated taboos and
politically slanted histories, as those at the opposite extreme
would maintain. Rather, it is a very mixed set of documents, by
many different writers, from many different times, which records
the struggle of many people in one particular religious tradition
to respond to their discernments of a transcendent spiritual power.
What makes the Bible distinctive among other religious books is the
dominant image of transendence, of spirituality, that slowly
develops in its pages. This is the image of a power that helps
humans to seek a moral goal in history even when such a thing would
seem impossible to achieve - were it not for the power of grace.
The bible, in short, is a spiritual text.
