THE GREAT GOOD BOOK: The Bible and the Roots of Western Literature (Barnes & Noble Portable Professor) by Adam Potkay (2004-05-03). This one had good information in the book, but the professor was too folksy for my taste. I felt about 30% of the time could have been cut from the lectures, or that the 30% would have been better utilized by including more of the content in the book. I will say, however, that for a general introduction and orientation to the foundations of Western thought, this course is adequate. It is satisfactory for those of us who will take the time to peruse the book.

Narrated by Adam Potkay . The Bible is renowned as a rich source of myth and parable, prose and poetry. Indeed, much of Western Literature owes an enormous debt to the unique and widely varied writings in this important religious text.

Monica Brezinski Potkay, narrated by Adam Potkay. The goal of this audio course is to provide listeners with a literary and historical overview of the Bible, from its opening in Genesis to its ending in the Book of Revelation, and also with a sense of some of the ways in which the Bible has influenced the literary traditions of the West. We'll be exploring key scenes, stories, forms, and books of the Bible through the methods of literary and cultural analysis. We'll be asking questions such as: what, in literary terms, might a Biblical story mean? How does its form and style contribute to its meaning?

Professor Potkay of the College of William and Mary traces the Bible's literary influence on Western (primarily English) literature. He works his way from Genesis to Revelation with 10 lectures on the narratives, poetry, and wisdom literature of the Hebrew Bible, and four lectures on the parables, epistles, and prophecies of the New Testament, surveying the influence of these writings on the works of Shakespeare, Milton, Wordsworth, Blake, and Melville, on down to Bob Dylan and Toni Morrison

Not as much about Western Literature, but I enjoyed it. I do not believe I'll keep much of the information for further use, but there are some interesting facts, and comparisons I wasn't familiar with. That made the price a big plus!

It was fine, no real issue. My sone really enjoyed it a lot. I would buy more other various versions of this again.

Again, it is very silly that you require a certain amount of words for your reviews!

I enjoyed these lectures immensely. The sessions are well-organized, and the content is ideal for people who are interested in how the Bible was formed, without any emphasis on what this church or that church says the Bible ought to be. Adam Potkay also provided a lot of good perspective on individual books of the Bible as good literature rather than as a semi-magical sacred text.

This is a great introduction to the Bible as both a piece of literature itself and its impact on the Western literary tradition. The Bible (along with the Greco-Roman plays) forms the core of Western literature and you can't begin to understand the cultural tradition of the West without some basic understanding of the Bible. It just gives you a deeper appreciation for other works of the Western Canon such as Dante and Milton and for art in general.
