The Bible is more than a collection of ancient stories. It's actually a unified whole, consisting of carefully crafted pieces of literature, each with its own unique literary style, form, and techniques. In this comprehensive volume, renowned literary expert and Bible scholar Leland Ryken introduces readers to the distinct literary features of each book of the Bible. Exploring how such features shed light on the message of the biblical writers through book outlines, helpful charts, and succinct definitions, this companion to Ryken's A Complete Handbook of Literary Forms in the Bible will help Bible readers and students read, interpret, and teach God's Word with greater precision and deeper insight.
