The Bible is a Library!


The Bible is not one book nor is it history in the modern sense. The Bible contains works of poetry, myth, religious-themed narratives, philosophical musings such as The Book of Ecclesiastes, letters, and the apocalyptic masterpiece known as The Book of Revelation. The common thread in all these collected works is the existence of an all-powerful deity who is the creator of the universe and has an interest in the personal lives and final fate of human beings. The bible contains both myth and history. Myth is a narrative of origins, taking place in a primordial time, a time other than that of everyday reality. Mythology is based on superstitions and legends; history is a narrative of actual events, of everyday reality [in the Bible generally writen by the Jews who lived it.]

About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
