Why the historical books of the bible are pieces of religious literature?
The Holy Bible is widely acclaimed and accepted piece of Religious Literature. Religious literature is a piece of work that deals with the ways people should lead their life and maintain their ideas and wants. The Holy Bible and the other pieces related to this Holy Piece dictates the same; that is why they are regarded as the Religious Literature.
The historical books as well as recording history, also tell about God's dealings with His chosen people Izrael. From them we can learn about God and His ways. We can learn about sin and retribution, we can learn about the character of man. These books also lay the foundation for the coming of Jesus Christ and salvation through grace.
Secular just means non-religious. So, secular literature is really ALL literature except religious literature... and even religious literature can be looked at from a non-religious viewpoint, so for instance in a Bible As Literature class, the class would look at the text from a non-religious perspective.
you if you want to read read it but when you not read pray. Aside from religious purposes, the Bible is one the key pieces of literature to understand Western society and culture. The stories of the Bible form the foundation and allusions of many stories, its proverbs have become commonplace, and its ideals have formed the root of modern politics.

The holy books are the Tanakh: the Hebrew Bible consisting of the Torah (Teachings), Nevi'im (Prophets), and K'tuvim (Writings). There are a number of additional pieces of religious literature that range in importance from the Mishnah, Talmud, Gemarah, and the Shulchan Aruch (which are at the high end) to smaller treatises put out by famous Rabbis on very specific religious topics (at the lower end). Libraries can be filled with the wide range of Jewish… Read More

Israeli literature is written mostly in Hebrew. If by Hebrew literature, you refer exclusively to Biblical and contemporaneous literature, there is some Israeli literature that references those texts. Some refer to the Bible for religious reasons, some reference the Bible for its imagery or to provide another view of one of its stories, and the remainder may have absolutely no connection to Ancient Hebrew literature.

What I believe is that the Canon (with 46 books in the Old Testament), while the Bible contains all of 39 books in the Old Testament, and 27 in the New Testament.

The "Bible" is not one book, but many. It was compiled from writings that had religious, cultural, and historical significance over many centuries.
In addition to its religious importance, the Bible is considered to be one of the world's leading works of literature. Literary criticism is the study, interpretation and evaluation of works of literature. Biblical literary criticism is the study and interpretation of the Bible as a literary work.
History and literature are intertwine with each other. Literature may become history as stories of world war I by Hemingway are an insight into the era. History may become literature as the bible reveals historical accounts of events as a literary work.

In many countries, the Bible, or parts thereof, was used as a school book. Sometimes the Bible was read as a religious book with ethical lessons and other times it was read as a historic piece of literature.
Actually, one could argue that the Bible contains true historical facts back by record (Besides the solely religious verses)
The two often go together as the historical accounts also contain religious truth and lessons in them. Religious truth is often also taught in 'pure' form where it has no direct reference to any particular historical event attached to it. In this sense it also has a wider application as these religious principles, often taught as 'principles for life' such as in the Proverbs, have a universal application to all people throughout time.

The Bible conveys some historical truths, although it also conveys a number of interesting legends, especially in the Pentateuch (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy). In other cases the historical truths are conflated with exaggeration and religious or cultural gloss. For Christians, the Bible also contains spiritual truths.
A: I am afraid there are far more than 52 errors in the Bible. Even if we accept the religious truth of everything in the Bible, there are very, very many scientific and historical errorsin the Bible, as well as contradictions and anomalies. The Bible is a book of faith, not a book of fact.
There is a large amount of literature in Hebrew. The most famous is the Bible, that is written in biblical Hebrew. The Bible includes the Torah (pentateuch), the first five books, and also the books of the Writings and of the Prophets. There are also many other religious books, such as the mishna, written later. There is a flourishing body of literature being written in Modern Hebrew today in Israel.

The Bible contains many different types of literature, and the interpreter must apply somewhat different principles in each case. For example, historical narrative tells a story; it is quite different from prophecy, which calls the people to trust in God or describes God's future plans for the world.

Yes, Jews read. Lots of things happen in books that Jews read as Jews read a wide variety of books. In terms of strictly religious literature, Judaism recounts the events of the Old Testament of the Bible which are quite numerous. Most other religious Jewish Literature is Rabbinic Commentary on the laws presented in the Pentateuch.
Answer The Bible is a religious book, the scripture of Christianity. The first part of the Bible, known to Christians as the Old testament, is the main scripture of Judaism. Some see the Bible as also a book of history, but others caution that the biblical history is not always accurate and any historical accounts in the Bible should be confirmed by independent sources. Others see parts of the Bible as containing the legends of… Read More

There are several biblical/religious and historical allusions and an arts allusion. Some are as follows: religious- Messiah, Job, Adam and Eve, Noah's flood, and of course the "Bible verse"; historical Holocaust, the Fascists, the Death's head, Babylon, Spanish Inquisition, Dr. Mengele, Hitler, Zionism, and the mentions of Birkenau, Auschwitz, and Buchenwald; Arts- Beethoven's concerto.
Are there books that relate historical events with religious stories mentioned in the Quran Torah Bible or is this lost knowledge?
Yes. More and more books have been written, relating historical events to religious stories. For example, several books have been written, explaining how the sudden inundation of the Black Sea, around 5,600 BCE, led to the Flood stories of Utnapishtim and Noah.
Genesis to Esther,(the first 17 books of the Old Testament), make up a history of God's relationship with man from creation until the fifth century B.C.E. In a very broad sense, the entire Bible is historical. But many would say Genesis through Esther are the historical books while the others are prophecy or literature.

The word allusion mean when you reference something to a book, art work, people, etc. So you can refer to a person, document, something historical. A religious allusion is when someone is referring to the Bible. For example, Abe Lincoln said in his Gettysburg Address speech "4 score and 7 years ago". That is a biblical (religious) allusion because in the bible they don't say blank years ago, they used the word score.

A: Sometimes, Bible stories are included in studies of world literature for their historical importance and because it is possible to study the poetic structure and evolution of some books. Of course, sometimes Bible stories are included merely as a backdoor attempt to introduce Christian teachings into what should be secular studies. One way to tell which is the reason for including Bible stories in the curriculum is to see whether their inclusion is balanced… Read More
