Journal of Instructional Pedagogies, v2 Mar 2010

The research question "Should the Bible be taught as a literary classic in public education?" was pursued by a survey of nineteen scholars from three disciplines: education, literature, and law. The collected data served to guide the researcher in the writing of an analytical essay responding to the research question. The research question is addressed after the data enabled the researcher to respond to three prerequisite questions: (1) What are the qualifications of a literary classic? (2) Is the Bible a literary classic? (3) Even if the Bible is a literary classic, does it necessarily follow that it should be taught in public schools?
