Interpreting Biblical Literature: An Introduction to Biblical Studies 

Grantham, PA: Stony Run Publishing, 2009 

“This book is a gift to students and teachers! With an accessible style and engaging wit, Cosby provides a sure-footed guide to those embarking on the journey into critical study of the biblical literature…. I highly recommend its adoption.”

Brad E. Kelle, Associate Professor of Old Testament, Point Loma Nazarene University


“Cosby has been able to combine ‘critical’ scholarship and a sensitivity with faith-based readings of the Bible. Add to that the illustrations, which are situated so that they both add to the discussion and are veritable eye-candy, and the result is the strongest one-volume introduction to biblical studies I have read.”

Robert D. Holmstedt, Professor of Biblical Hebrew and Northwest Semitic Languages, The University of Toronto


“This is an excellent introductory text; it covers all the fundamental introductory issues that college undergraduates need to address. Cosby’s text strikes a good balance in presenting challenging new ideas yet not overwhelming the beginning student.”

Mary Ann Stachow, Assistant Professor of Theology, Xavier University of Louisiana
