Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Nature and Scripture in the Abrahamic religions : 1700-present contains acknowledgements, a notes on contributors and a list of illustrations. The Bible is a complex and often difficult collection of books. Attitudes to it depend principally on individual religious persuasion, and more rarely, on assessment of its literary merit or theological meaning. The interaction of reader or hearer with the Bible has been transformed by changes in the status of all forms of ?scripture? during the development of print culture, and following the transformation of that culture by new oral and visual technologies of communication. It has been altered by the multiplication of alternative sources of knowledge and intellectual authority, including the discovery and creation of new forms of ?scripture,? which are both a symptom and a cause of such a transformation.
