The Old Testament's stories are intriguing, mesmerizing, and provocative not only due to their ancient literary craft but also because of their ongoing relevance. In this volume, well suited to college and seminary use, Walsh explains how to interpret these narrative passages of Scripture based on standard literary elements such as plot, characterization, setting, pace, point of view, and patterns of repetition.What makes this book an exceptional resource is an appendix that offers practical examples of narrative interpretation--something no other book on Old Testament interpretation offers. These examples are coordinated with guided exercises that enable students to get hands-on experience.
