How Bible Stories Work: A Guided Study of Biblical Narrative (Reading the Bible As Literature)
How Bible Stories Work: A Guided Study of Biblical Narrative (Reading the Bible As Literature) by Leland Ryken
This is the first of a projected six-volume series called Reading the Bible as Literature (the second volume being Sweeter Than Honey, Richer Than Gold). An expert at exploring the intersection of the Bible and literature, Ryken shows pastors and students and teachers of the Bible how to appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty of biblical narrative and how to interpret it correctly. Dr. Ryken goes one step further than merely explaining the genre of story―he includes exercises to help students master this rich literary treasure.
