For centuries people have turned to the Hebrew Bible to hear the life-giving words of God's everlasting covenant. Berit Olam: Studies in Hebrew Narrative and Poetry shares the riches of this message with all who seek to hear it. Twenty-four volumes are projected for the series. Anticipate one volume in the series each spring and fall.-- This series reflects the latest developments in a relatively new method of biblical study: literary criticism.-- The authors approach the books of the Hebrew Bible as literary works, recognizing that the stories and poetry can be better appreciated if one is acquainted with the techniques whereby the ancient Hebrew authors told stories and wrote poems, as well as the strategies that modern readers use to understand them.-- The contributors represent a variety of religious traditions, and theoretical approaches.-- The authors comment on the text of the Hebrew Bible but they refer primarily to the New Revised Standard Version when referring to a modern translation.-- The volumes in Berit Olam contain commentary only; the complete biblical text is not included.Enables readers to discover the uncertainties of the texts of Ruth and Esther and shows how these uncertainties are integral to the narrative art of these texts.
