The Impact of the Bible in the World: Literature  

From art, literature and architecture to science, government, and civil rights, the Bible has had wide-reaching influence in western culture. The Bible is sometimes “hidden in plain sight,” even in the themes of great works of literature. John Steinbeck’s East of Eden draws from the biblical story of Cain and Abel. Even the title comes from Genesis 4:16: “And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.”
