An introduction to the Bible by Stanley Arthur Cook( Book )

This book endeavors to provide a very general introduction to the Bible including the Apocrypha. A brief outline of the English Bible is followed by a digression on other sacred lore, indicating some of the topics prominent in other great historical religions and illustrating the background upon which the Bible is now placed, a short account of the growth of the Bible, the canon, text and interpretation, leads to a rapid survey of the books of the Bible and the Apocrypha. A fuller chapter deals with the phraseology, and more particularly with the main ideas which serve to interrelate the canonical, apocryphal and apocalyptic writings. A chapter on Jerusalem and Mt. Zion strengthens this interrelation. Two concluding chapters offer remarks on our approach to the Bible, urging that with all our advances in scientific and other knowledge the Bible remains, as before, the Word of God. - Preface

This volume covers the history of the Roman Empire from the accession of Septimius Severus in AD 193 to the death of Constantine in AD 337. This period was one of the most critical in the history of the Mediterranean world. It begins with the establishment of the Severan dynasty as a result of civil war. From AD 235 this period of relative stability was followed by half a century of short reigns of short-lived emperors and a number of military attacks on the eastern and northern frontiers of the empire. This was followed by the First Tetrarchy (AD 284-305), a period of collegial rule in which Diocletian, with his colleague Maximian and two junior Caesars (Constantius and Galerius), restabilised the empire. The period ends with the reign of the first Christian emperor, Constantine, who defeated Licinius and established a dynasty which lasted for thirty-five years
