Jesus the Hero: A Guided Literary Study of the Gospels

Product Description

The fourth of a six-volume series entitled Reading the Bible as Literature, Leland Ryken's Jesus the Hero: A Guided Literary Study of the Gospels continues the tradition of the first three in the series by exploring the intersection of Bible and literature. Distinguished professor and author, Leland Ryken, enables pastors, students, and teachers of Scripture to appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty of the Gospels and how to interpret them correctly, going one step further than merely explaining the literary dimensions of the Gospels by including exercises to aid students in mastering the rich literary treasure.

About the Series

Speaking of the entire series, Ryken says that "the niche that these volumes are designed to fill is the literary approach to the Bible. This has been my scholarly passion for nearly half a century. It is my belief that a literary approach to the Bible is the common reader's friend, in contrast to the more specialized types of scholarship on the Bible."

    Ryken's literary view of the gospels brings to light user-friendly interpretive decisions that we can all take into account as we read about Jesus. I greatly enjoyed reading this book and I think it would make for a great small-group or sunday-school study.
