Product Description

Literary criticism has developed as one of the most important and evocative methods for interpreting biblical narratives. John Petersen delves deeply into three stories of women in the Hebrew Bible (Hannah, Deborah, and Tamar) and explores issues of reading character, plot, and point of view.

By addressing these concepts in depth and with subtlety, he is able to show how human experience is depicted using a variety of structuring, focusing, and interpretive devices. Beyond analyzing these narratives, he teaches readers how to get more out of every biblical story they read.
