Words and the Word edited by David Firth and Jamie A. Grant, offers eight informative and stimulating essays that will bring readers abreast of this conversation. This volume's contributors are united in their belief that a proper understanding of key aspects of literary theory can make a significant contribution to biblical interpretation. Their essays survey general issues in the field, take a look at some specific approaches, and outline the relevance and contribution these make to the task of biblical interpretation. Students of biblical interpretation who have moved beyond the basics will find Words and the Word to be a wonderful introduction to the major ideas, methods and thinkers in literary interpretation of the Bible.

"Two general papers titled 'Literary theory and biblical interpretation' (G. Osborne, who discusses narrative theory as a 'test case') and 'A structural-historical approach to the exegesis of the Old Testament' (S. Syman) are followed by six more papers that deal with speech-act theory (R. Briggs), genre criticism (J.K. Brown), ambiguity (D.G. Firth), poetics (J. Grant), and discourse analysis (T. Wardlaw). Each article has a bibliography. --Recommended."
"Succeeds admirably in what it set out to do. It presents a wide array of topics in an introductory yet thorough manner, engages current scholarship outside of the boundaries of evangelicalism while showing the benefits and applicability of these resources to those within that interpretive community, and points the way towards further research for those whose interest has been piqued by the discussion."
