    My eyes have been opened to an incredible treasure of more literary content in the Bible than I had ever before fathomed as a result of reading this book. You have to read it in small bites, as most of the book consists of example after example of interpreting Bible passages in their literary genre. I see this book as an excellent tool for the Bible teacher to become more effective at teaching difficult and esoteric books and passages from the bible with an understanding based on the message and style author intended.
