Publisher's Description

This is the second of a projected six-volume series called Reading the Bible as Literature (the first volume being How Bible Stories Work). An expert at exploring the intersection of the Bible and literature, Ryken shows pastors and students and teachers of the Bible how to appreciate the craftsmanship and beauty of biblical poetry and how to interpret it correctly. Dr. Ryken goes one step further than merely explaining the genre of poetry—he includes exercises to help students master this rich 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.”

    This book is in some ways simply a book about how to read poems, not just those found in the Bible (though the Bible is always in view). I have enjoyed applying the things I learned as I read through the psalms and other poetic passages in the Bible. If you have a hard time reading poetry (like the psalms), this is a great resource.
