According to an online description about this introductory text, it assumes "no prior knowledge of the Hebrew Bible..." and "blends an emphasis on both story and scholarship."

Sang joined the faculty of Catawba College in 1985. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Carroll College in Wisconsin; a Master of Divinity degree from Colgate Rochester Theological Seminary in New York state; and a Master of Philosophy and Ph.D. in Biblical Studies from Drew University in New Jersey. Dr. Sang maintains ordinations in the American Baptist Churches, USA, and in the Presbyterian Church, USA. His special fields of interest are New Testament studies, Old Testament prophecy, and Process Theology.
