The Bible as Literature.
Corvallis Senior High School, OR.
This 9-week course outline (a weekly list of readings) is designed to acquaint students with the chief stories, characters, events, and passages from the Bible which are commonly referred to, alluded to, or used as themes, symbols, or motifs in Western literature. Using "The Bible, Selections from the King James Version for Study as Literature" as a text, the course deals with Old and New Testament themes, such as the idea of a Supreme Being, the nature of man, the understanding of right and wrong, the reasons for happiness or suffering in the world, and punishments or rewards after death. The program attempts to broaden understanding and insight rather than to teach cliches and platitudes. (MF)
