“Brimming with ideas, this book can offer helpful assistance when considering how biblical themes and historical issues might be easily amplified through comparison with the artistic media and expressions of popular culture. … The contents of the book succeed in stimulating the reader to think about pedagogy in courses on the Bible in ever-more creative ways. Don’t let students read this book, or they’ll start to expect much more of their instructors!”
— Bruce Longenecker, Journal for the Study of the New Testament

“Overall, the editors are to be congratulated not only for an invaluable resource, but also for making a powerful cumulative argument for the ongoing significance of the Bible in Western culture.”
— P. P. Jenson, Journal for the Study of the Old Testament
