Product Description

How Bible Stories Work is the first of a projected six-volume series called Reading the Bible as Literature. An expert at exploring the intersection of the Bible and literature, Leland 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.

Editorial Reviews

Leland Ryken has been a pacesetter in the literary study of the Bible, especially within the evangelical community. Those of us who find this approach to Scripture especially enriching are always ready to listen when Ryken speaks. Kudos to the Weaver Book Company for launching an entire series in which Ryken will take us on a guided tour of the various types of literature in the Bible. In this first volume he addresses biblical narrative, focusing on important topics such as universal themes, setting, characterization, and plot. Readers who master Ryken’s principles will find the Bible open up to them in new, exciting ways.

    This book is a great introduction to narrative/storytelling techniques and elements in general, not just those found in the Bible. My only issue is that Ryken doesn't discuss in what ways Hebrew narratives differ from those of a modern day storyteller. I especially would have liked an example of how to dissect a story from Exodus or Numbers that, along with being a story, contains a lot of laws.
