Publisher's Description

This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable.

Long begins this volume with a discussion of the nature of historical literature and a survey of its important genres: list, report, story, and history. He then focuses on 1 Kings as an example of historical literature, first analyzing the book as a whole and then unit-by-unit. The work is enhanced by extensive bibliographies and a glossary of genres and formulas which offers clear, thorough definitions with examples.

Editorial Reviews

John Van Seters
"A clear, forceful, and innovative presentation of historiographic forms in the Book of Kings. It sets a high standard for the subsequent treatment of historical narrative both within this series and in Old Testament studies in general, and will serve as an important reference work for years to come."

David M. Gunn
"Burke Long writes with style, clarity, and a most welcome sensitivity to the literary qualities of his text. The book is a mine of information and insight. . . Strongly recommended to student and research scholar alike."
