Product Description

The third of a six-volume series entitled Reading the Bible as Literature, Letters of Grace and Beauty explores the intersection of the Bible and literature, demonstrating for pastors, students, and teachers of the Bible how the literary craftsmanship of the epistles leads to a richer understanding of its contents. Dr. Leland Ryken goes one step further than merely explaining the literary dimensions of the epistles by including exercises to help students master this literary treasure.

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 contract to the more specialized types of scholarship on the Bible."

    It may be due solely to the subject matter, but this is the weakest of the Reading the Bible as Literature series. Many of the literary aspects that Ryken draws our attention to in the epistles simply aren't as relevant to our enjoying or understanding the epistles as is the case in his other books. Nevertheless, this is a cheap way to introduce yourself to some unique concepts and interpretive considerations with regard to the New Testament epistles. I recommend this book because it is part of a great series.
